About Tony Carr
Tony Carr is a fluid, gifted shot-maker who can put points on the board in bunches from the perimeter. A consensus top-50 prospect in the high school class of 2016, Carr emerged as an instant contributor for Pat Chambers at Penn State earning All-Big Ten Freshman Team honors averaging 13.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game. A big guard with a tremendous mid-post game and a reliable jump shot, Carr broke out as a sophomore establishing himself as one of the most productive power conference guards in the nation averaging 19.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 5 assists per game to earn All-Big Ten First Team honors and lead Penn State to an NIT Championship.
- Measured 6’4.5 in shoes with a solid 6’8.25 wingspan and lean 199-pound frame at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine. Has impressive size for a combo guard to go along with good length, and great fluidity.
- Played a huge role for Penn State who leaned on him heavily for long stretches of last season. Carried the Nittany Lions to some of their best wins with his ability to heat up from the perimeter. Finished the year as the team’s leader in points and assists. Did much of his damage creating out of ball screen actions and in one-on-one situations scoring from all three levels off the dribble, but also made set shots at a strong rate and used his size to his advantage in the post contributing in a variety of ways as a sophomore.
- Solid defender who can hold his own on the perimeter when dialed in. Rose to the occasion defensively a number of times late in the year. Uses his size well to give himself a cushion to stay in front of smaller guards in spots and has the length to contest shots pretty effectively. Allowed just 1.031 points per Spot Up possession[31st percentile]. Could stay engaged off the ball more consistently and look to be more of a factor in the passing lanes. Very good rebounder for his size.
