Jevon Carter will immediately fill a need for the Milwaukee Bucks

As stated before, the backup point guard position has been an area of need for the Bucks. With Hill’s injury, this need has increased tenfold. Rookie Lindell Wigginton has been serviceable in his time on the court, but Carter will bring more experience to the position immediately.

Carter has seen limited run in his career, averaging only about 13 minutes per game. However, he has brought value in his time on the court. Carter has notched an average of nearly 37 percent on his 3-point attempts in his career. With a team like Milwaukee, Carter could be in a prime position to excel as a 3&D player off the bench.

His defense has already been discussed, and he is certainly a special defender, but he also provides serviceable shooting specifically from beyond the arc. Carter could also provide a 3-point shooting spark off the bench that is currently missing with the absence of Pat Connaughton. While it is tough to say that this time that Carter will make a big impact come playoff time, he will make a huge impact as the Bucks head down the home stretch after the All-Star Break.

Carter will be an important player for the Bucks off the bench at the point guard position. After looking for ways to fill in some production off the bench at the point guard position, the Bucks may have found their guy in Carter. Time will tell how impactful Carter will be, but a need has certainly been filled at this time.
