Michael Carter-Williams was all over the place in summer league, where his two biggest flaws were badly exposed.
His jumper and decision-making were both ridiculously erratic. He shot just 3-of-19 from downtown for 15 percent and finished with a 27 percent field-goal clip.
This was a concern at Syracuse, where his jump-shot mechanics and accuracy were both spotty all year long.
Carter-Williams was also a turnover machine this summer, coughing it up nearly five times a game. He turned it over at least eight times in two different games, which points to his volatility when pressured.
Without a threatening jumper, Carter-Williams tries to fit through cracks and get to spots that just aren't there.
You won't find too many successful point guards who can't consistently knock down jumpers. And until Carter-Williams smooths his out, the rest of his game is likely to suffer.
