Wheatley is an elite young athlete. His entry and hustle serve as a spark plug to his team as they feed off that energy. Carter is a steady constant scorer but picks his moments for only high percentage opportunities. He shoots that three ball at 39 percent, but there is no doubt if he shot more his scoring average would be much higher. Carter prided himself on passing and defense over scoring. He absolutely loves dropping dimes and seeing his teammates get shots. In the AAU session, Carter averaged 8pts, 3asts, 1blk, and 2 charges in a game. His biggest improvement was his shooting and finishing at the rim. Carter was always a good shooter but now you can’t leave him or it’s buckets if he shoots. Last year, Carter averaged 10pts, 3rebs, and 6asts. This season the goal is to get his first in-game dunk and break into that 1000-point club. Coaches should know Carter’s work ethic is what sets him apart.
