6'10 260lbs center. Playing for Duke. Projected as of right now 9th pick.

In case the nets are somehow better this year, I've been looking at the 2nd tier of the upcoming draft.
Few takes from other message boards:

"decent mid range game, decent athlete although lacks an explosive burst or quick twitch athletisism, good size/height/length, vvery strong, smart basketball player"

"one of the most sure-fire prospects in recent years. He already has a NBA-ready body to going along with sound fundamentals and above average athleticism. And judging by his high school tapes and the 15-20 minutes long video from the McDonald's All American practice, he seems to be the only one that has any pro-level post moves"

"Carter seems like he will be an elite college player and merely a good pro, but he could be an Al Horford type at the next level if his jump shot keeps developing. It will be interesting to see if he or his polar opposite Robert Williams will go higher in next year's draft."

Love Carter. Could easily see him developing into an Al Horford-esque player, however I hope that we're in the position where picking him would be a massive reach ;D
