Tony Carr

Tony Carr had a breakout year for the Penn State Nittany Lions in 2017-18, and he ended up finishing 2nd in made field goals in the Big Ten with 245, 1st in attempted field goals with an immense 600 and 1st in points with 725.

Carr is what you would call a throwback player, a ball-dominant two guard who is looking to get his own shot first and pass to someone else as a second option. Volume scoring was the name of the game for Carr in 17-18, as his true shooting percentage of 50.2 does not scream “efficient.”

But still, the Hawks are in no position to quibble, and Carr’s singular talents could suit a team that lacked someone who was willing to shoot with no conscience, as Dennis Schröder was more reliant on drives to score, which are much easier to defend than a jump shot. If the Hawks wanted to take a chance on a volume scorer in the second round, which is where Carr is expected to be selected, it would make sense.
