Jahii Carson, PG, Arizona State

Carson is a 5-foot-11, 180-pound point guard who will be 22 in August.

He averaged 18.6 points, 4.6 assists and four rebounds in 35.4 minutes per game as a sophomore for the Sun Devils, shooting .433/.391/.718.

Carson had an up-and-down season, but did help Arizona State into the NCAA tournament and will be one of the smallest players in the league if he makes a roster in the fall. Since 2000, there have only been five players drafted who are shorter than 6 feet tall and only three saw playing time in 2013-14.

Carson is a great athlete, very fast, and is very quick with the ball. He has tremendous leaping ability—posting a 43½-inch vertical leap at the combine—and can disrupt defenses with his ability to change speeds and directions on the fly.

But he was very ball-dominant in college and didn’t distribute the ball well and will likely struggle defensively at the NBA level due to his size limitations. But he also showed a lack of effort at times at Arizona State. He’s got quick feet but will struggle at time to keep up with bigger players and cut off their lanes to the basket.

He also developed a reputation for not always seeing eye-to-eye with the coaching staff at Arizona State and was also known as not being a great teammate.

Projected to come off the board: No. 36-undrafted.
