Suns Draft Central

Point Guard | 6’-5” | 175 lbs. | Syracuse

A slender, tall point guard, Michael Carter-Williams found numerous ways to impact the game while at Syracuse. In his second season, the guard received his first significant playing time with the Orange and he helped lead the team to the Final Four. Offensively, his game might be limited, at the moment, to scoring on the break and inside the three-point line, which is part of the reason why he averaged 11.9 points per game. But he also involved his teammates by dishing out 7.3 assists per game, had a presence on the glass with 4.9 rebounds per game and was a great defender. According to draft experts, teams will be looking for Carter-Williams to expand his offensive repertoire.

“The production of Carter-Williams (12.1 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 7.4 APG, 2.8 SPG, 3.4 TPG) has been vital for Boeheim's program, too. Per ESPN Stats & Info, the sophomore has been responsible for 41.8 percent of the Orange's points this season, and the team has lost just four of 24 games when he has been credited with 40 percent of the offense (via points or assists). So when MCW shines, his squad usually wins.”
