In his rookie campaign with Memphis, Carter averaged 4.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 39 appearances, including three starts. He shined brightest in his final game of the season, pouring in a season-high 32 points on 10-of-18 shooting (8-12 3Pt). Carter spent time between the G League and the NBA for much of his rookie season, but still reached double figures five times while serving primarily as point guard depth when with the NBA club. He continues to refine his three-point shot, though Carter did connect on 2.9 threes per 100 possessions and shot 33 percent from beyond the arc. Over 55 percent of Carter's field-goal attempts were threes, putting him third on the Grizzlies in that department. Defensively, his steal percentage (2.2) was fourth-best on the team. It's a skill that likely stayed with him after playing constant full-court press in his college days at West Virginia. As the season winded down and Memphis had been eliminated from playoff contention, Carter saw his role increase. After re-joining the club following the G League playoffs in late-March, he posted averages of 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in his final five appearances. Carter also shot 59.3 percent from three in April, ending the season on a high note.
