It goes without saying that Milwaukee Bucks fans were pleased when it was announced that the team re-signed Jevon Carter in free agency this past offseason.

Following an impressive showing in the preseason over the past several weeks, fans are anxious to see Carter hopefully play a more prominent role during the 2022-23 season. If Carter can build off the success he had with the Bucks after signing with them late last season, he could be on the verge of a breakout year. With that said, here are three bold predictions for the 27-year-old guard as he looks to assert himself as a key contributor with the Bucks in 2022-23.

Bold prediction No. 1 – Jevon Carter will average new career-highs in points and assists per game with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2022-23

In 20 regular season games with the Milwaukee Bucks last season, Jevon Carter put up the best numbers of his NBA career in virtually every category. He averaged 5.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 17.7 minutes per game. Though those numbers may not jump off the page, Carter’s impact was felt every single time he checked into the game last season. As he looks to become an even more crucial piece to the puzzle in 2022-23, Carter could shatter his previous career bests in points and assists.

According to, Milwaukee’s reserves ranked 27th in points and 28th in assists per game last season. While Carter alone may not bulk up those numbers mightily, he could certainly provide some assistance. The point guard has shown that he can score and pass the basketball at a high level. While it came in a small sample size, Carter turned heads throughout the preseason as he averaged 10.6 points and 3.6 assists in 21.9 minutes per game. His numbers may not look like that once the season begins, but Carter can provide more scoring and facilitating when given the chance. It would not be surprising to see him eclipse his numbers from last season.

Obviously, for Carter to surpass his current career highs, it starts with him earning more minutes in Mike Budenholzer’s rotation. Given what he has shown over the last several months, he should not have any trouble with that, hopefully. If Carter secures his status as Milwaukee’s backup point guard full-time, he could unquestionably put up new career bests in points and assists per game. Hopefully the guard will be entrusted to do more off the bench this season.
