Michael Carter-Williams is one of the toughest prospects to project, based on the fact that we rarely come across 6'6" pure point guards.
But along with his strengths come glaring weaknesses. He's got a jumper that can't be trusted, and he demonstrates reckless decision-making, a flaw that isn't always correctable.
Starting off in Philadelphia might be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, he'll have the opportunity to play starter minutes right away and hopefully adjust a little sooner. On the other hand, he might get swallowed alive without many offensive weapons to surround him.
I wouldn't be surprised if Carter-Williams put up big numbers in the NBA. I'm just not sure they will translate to wins unless he's got substantial talent around him.
The first portion of Carter-Williams' career might actually be linked to who the Sixers end up with following the 2014 draft.
Either way, Carter-Williams should have a long career as a starter or backup.
