Devin Carter's Journey to the NBA: The Rise of a Versatile Star

Devin Carter, the standout Providence guard, has announced his departure from college basketball to enter the 2024 NBA draft. As the reigning Big East Player of the Year, Carter boasts an impressive resume.

Carter's junior season was a testament to his versatility and growth. Ranked 17th among draft prospects by ESPN, he led the Big East in scoring (19.8 points per game) and finished third in rebounding (8.7 rebounds per game). Notably, he earned an honorable mention on the Associated Press' All-America team.

Carter's impact extends beyond his statistical contributions. His defensive prowess, particularly his ability to guard multiple positions, is highly sought after in the NBA. Standing 6'3" with a 6'9" wingspan, he combines physicality with agility, making him a formidable presence on the court.

Under new head coach Kim English, Carter's offensive game flourished. He emerged as a dangerous shooter, connecting on 38% of his 3-point attempts while showcasing his ability to create shots for others.

Carter's father, Anthony, played 13 seasons in the NBA as an undrafted free agent. This lineage provides him with invaluable insights and experience as he embarks on his own professional journey.

The NBA draft will take place in New York City on June 26 and 27. The first round will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with the second round following the next day at ESPN's studio in lower Manhattan. Carter's exceptional talent and potential make him a prime candidate to make his mark on the NBA stage.
