Summer Focus

The upside to all of this is that this will be Carter-Williams first true summer as an NBA player to work on his game.

Last summer, he underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason that prevented him from participating in last year’s summer league, training camp and the start of this past season.

It certainly wasn’t the ideal situation for Carter-Williams and it could have had an effect on his eventual exit from Philadelphia.

As far as honing his skills go, his shooting form has to be the biggest emphasis this summer.  While he refined his shot selection when he came to Milwaukee, his limited shooting efficiency did provide spacing issues when paired with other limited shooters around the floor.

This summer will also give Carter-Williams enough time to become immersed in coach Kidd’s system and become familiar with teammates.

Getting traded midseason gives you little time to become acclimated with your new team and you have to adjust very quickly.  With the summer and ensuing training camp that lies ahead, that should give an ample amount of time for Carter-Williams to know the ins and outs of the gameplan under Kidd.
