I never really looked at Carlon as an NBA prospect but I guess we will see
Before he transferred from Utah, he almost entered the draft. Idk what he was projected to be though.
He needs a bump. I haven't seen him higher than #75 on any of the draft prospect lists. Chad Forde just released his Top 100 and Carlon didn't appear on it. http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft/results/top100/_/year/2012
Portsmouth Invitational is an excellent opportunity for Carlon to increase visibility. Best of luck to him. Worst case scenario he can make a few hundred thousand per year balling in Europe.
Portsmouth is usually a lot of guys who are either late first, second, or hoping to get into the second round guys. Everyone there is hoping to improve their stock. Some guys have moved themselved up into the middle of the first round. Lots of guys have moved themselves into second round positions.
If Carlon got invited to this camp it means that at least some NBA scouts think that he is good enough for a look against this level of competition.
As CVille says even if he doesn't play his way into the NBA he has a good shot at making a good living in Europe. The Portsmouth tends to get a lot of representatives from international teams attending.
international hoops is a nice way to make a living for some years, see the world, bang some Israeli or Italian supermodels. with all respect to CB and i am grateful for his time as a member of the Pac 12 Champs, but being invited to Portsmouth is better than not being invited to Portsmouth.
that's about it imo.
Carlon would make a great career out of some international ball. Maybe he and Levi can team up at some point and get to actually play as teammates in a real game.
Carlon plays today at 7:00 pm. He's on Roger Brown's team.
Had 10 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds and 4 turnovers in his team's victory last night. They play again tonight.
Pac-12 defensive player of the year is on the same team. 2pts 1 rebound 3 assists 5 rebounds.How dre got snubbed I will never know.
Brown got some good minutes it looks like. Need some more offense but a good start. He may bump himself up just enough.
How can one team have 227 total minutes and another have 224? rounding? But still seems weird.
In the wazzu game last year one team played for 5 minutes more than the other.
Seems Carlon's team won the tournament.
From a purely box score analysis he seems to have outplayed P12 POY jorge, i still don't think he will get drafted, but he will get invited to a camp.
I hope the exposure pays off for Carlon.
Nice artcile about a nice showing by Brown:
