Michael Carter-Williams

Name: Michael Carter-Williams

Overall Rank: #24

Position (Rank): Shooting Guard (#7)

College: Syracuse

High School: St. Andrew’s School (Rhode Island)

Height: 6’5

Weight: 175

Evaluation: Carter-Williams is a big-time scoring guard who can drain threes well beyond the arc, hit a mid-range jumper or floater and can take it to the bucket where he has the court vision to dish it to an open teammate. He also has developed nicely into a secondary ball-handler who can bring the ball up the floor. His stroke is also consistent and he’s a great free throw shooter who can put away games in the closing minutes. One area Carter-Williams clearly needs to improve on is his size. He is very small and needs to a lot of bulk to his tiny frame. His defense could also get better but look for him to be a great scorer at the next level.
