Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski took a moment to stop breaking NBA news for this transactional tweet about Baltimore playground legend Aquille Carr:

The Delaware 87ers of D-League released guard Aquille Carr. Another cautionary tale.

This marks the end of the latest chapter for the 5-foot-7 scoring dynamo better known as "Crimestopper." At one point Carr was reportedly headed to the college ranks, specifically Seton Hall. Then came buzz about the Baltimore high school legend, who averaged over 28 points per game as a senior at Princeton Day, jumping straight to the pro game somewhere overseas. By June, an offer came from a team in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Instead Carr landed in the D-League, which is where Wizards rookie Glen Rice Jr. landed before his selection in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. Carr averaged 10.7 points and shot 40 percent on 3-point attempts in 10 games with Delaware, but did not play in the last five games. That includes contests even after fellow guard Kendall Marshall received a call-up to the NBA via the Los Angeles Lakers.

This shouldn't be the last we hear from Carr. Whether that next stop is somewhere in the D-League or overseas is the question.
