At one point 5-foot-7 scoring dynamo Aquille Carr, better known as "Crimestopper" 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.
So where is Carr playing next? The D-League, obviously.
Johnny Foster, Carr's agent, told D-League Digest that his client had signed a contract with the D-League, meaning he'll be eligible for the league's upcoming draft. “It was his decision to play in the D-League, and to develop in order to get ready for next year’s NBA draft," Foster said.
Carr is therefore taking a similar route to confident Wizards' rookie Glen Rice Jr., who played in the D-League after three seasons at Georgia Tech. The swingman was selected in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft.
The Crimestopper's current draft status isn't quite so high (scroll down and stop before you hit No. 80). Carr has a season to change perceptions. If nothing else, expect some stupendous highlights coming out of the D-League this season.
