The Bucks have signed PG Jevon Carter after being released from the Brooklyn Nets. The signing of Jevon Carter provides the Bucks with some guard depth after the Donte DiVincenzo trade and the injuries to George Hill and Pat Connaughton.

What this means for the Bucks
George Hill may be further away from a full recovery as once originally thought. With no timetable set for his return, the PG depth behind Jrue Holiday was just Lindell Wigginton. Wigginton has been suitable for the Bucks in his limited playtime, but the Bucks needed to add some veteran PG play for the stretch. Carter is only in his fourth season as a pro, but he was part of a Phoenix Suns team that went to the NBA championships last season.
What Jevon Carter adds to the Bucks
Jevon Carter was solid for the Suns in his two years there. He was an efficient 3point shooter for them, shooting nearly 40% over his two seasons as a member of the Suns. Unfortunately, as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, his efficiency has dropped significantly. Carter was shooting 33% from the field and 33% from beyond the arc. As part of the Suns, he also added in roughly 2 assists and 2 rebounds a game. He’s not a great playmaker, but if he can raise his efficiency back to what it was on the Suns, he could be a solid shooter coming off the bench. Hopefully, the Bucks can get the Phoenix Suns version of Jevon Carter and not the Nets version.
