Re: PG Spot
Carter-Williams participated in Tuesday’s workout. He averaged 11.9 points and 7.3 assists last season, but he shot only 29 percent from 3-point line.
"He sees the court and passes the ball well," Perrin said. "... We know it’s a work in progress. For the most part, players in this draft have a few holes to work on. Michael’s is shooting and getting a little stronger."
Carter-Williams, who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 184 pounds, described his workout in Utah as "... tiring. The altitude is real up here. But it was good overall. I have fun. I think I did pretty well. I enjoyed it."
Carter-Williams probably won’t be available when the Jazz pick in the first round, but he likely worked out for them because Utah won’t have a point guard under contract after July 1.
If he slips to No. 14, the Jazz are intriguing to him.
"It would be a good spot for me to come in, play right away and chase some of my dreams." Carter-Williams said. "I think I could establish myself as a leader on the team. I wouldn’t have [much] pressure because they don’t have too many veterans. So it would be a great place for me."
