Jahii Carson To Enter NBA Draft

Jahii Carson has played his final home game for Arizona State, coach Herb Sendek told reporters, according to Bob Baum of The Associated Press.  The point guard is currently projected as a high-end second round pick by DraftExpress but could work his way up the boards with strong workouts.

The guard offers tremendous explosiveness and a wicked first step, but his height (5’11” or 5’10”, depending on who you ask) is likely to hurt his stock.  While his stature could limit his upside at the next level, it hasn’t hampered him in college much.  This season, Carson has averaged 18.4 PPG and 4.6 APG.  He’s not as efficient as he was last season, however.  He shot 47.3% from the floor in 2012/13 but he’s shooting 43.6% from the field so far in 2013/14.
