Aquille Carr Signs D-League Contract

After experimenting with his options overseas, Baltimore’s Aquille Carr, a former Seton Hall commit, has signed a D-League contract that will make him eligible for next month’s draft. More from D-League Digest: “According to Carr’s agent Johnny Foster, the skilled guard has “signed a D-League contract for the upcoming draft.” Foster also added, “It was his decision to play in the D-League, and to develop in order to get ready for next year’s NBA draft.” Now that Carr has signed an NBA D-League contract, he officially becomes eligible for the NBA D-League draft next month. Carr’s decision to spend this season in the NBA D-League is tremendous for both Carr, and the league itself. On the heels of NBA Commissioner David Stern’s comments regarding the NBADL, and his praise for the league (which accepts players when they’re 18), Carr’s choice to “develop in order to get ready for next year’s NBA draft”, is huge.”

    This is what I like about the NBADL. When will DL teams get to play host to NBA preseason matches?

  • KingJ6

    Good for him

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    what do you think he’ll average in the DL? Do you think he can make 2nd unit on an nba squad.

  • theDankerNuggets

    wow I didn’t know this was possible, if it works out for him I could definitely see more players start to do this

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    There was a guy on the thunder who wen to the D league first from hi school. Jermey tyler on the knicks did this as well.

  • Mark Estrada

    Jeremy Tyler left after his junior year of high school to play in Israel and Japan professionally from 2009-2011 and then declared for the 2011 draft.

    This little midget is a clown

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    that’s insulting. You need to refrain from personal attacks. Critique his game not the person. If you are saying height will influence his ability to pass okay, but to just call someone short and a clown isn’t befitting.

    I hope things go well for the Crime Stopper!

    I thought he was going to play in China?

  • Nick Holden

    This just makes it really sad that he turned down that contract of 750.000$ that was reportedly offered to him in Italy. Would be awesome if he could do well in the D-league though.

  • pols

    There’s no way anyone in Europe actually offered him that kind of contract.

  • LLC#12

    No, I think at this point, he’s not much more than a gimmick. By all reports, he got showed up a LOT at eurocamp, and that was when he probably was one of the quickest/fastest guys there, playing against similar aged kids. In the NBA, when he won’t have either of those luxuries, what is he going to rely on?

    I didn’t know you can sign with the DLeague at 18. If you can do that, why do these guys even bother with college?

  • Shifty

    The really good guys want to be a high draft pick and if picked high are guaranteed money. More money then the D-League. But why all the other players who are half decent and know they wont go high in the draft don’t do it….i don’t know. Don’t even know what the highest paid D-League player is.
    Well that’s what I think.

  • Dfrance

    It says he’s playing in the DLeague to prepare for the NBA Draft. So you can still enter the draft after a year in the DLeague and be a lottery pick.

    Hmm awesome question. I’m honoured to be asked my opinion – thanks!
    In another post many moons ago I offered the thought that A. CARR could get himself into a potent position as one of the finer 6th men of all time…. conversation quickly dissented into “Kevin McHale” reigns supreme territory and that was that. But I think thats his ceiling which really is a fine career when you look at it… it’s not a knock on him at all.
    Quote me this way…”Dacre thinks you’ll be one of the best 6th men ever Aquille”.
    Thanks for asking.

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    but no one agrees with your view. why do you still maintain it?

  • http://triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Skill set. He will have all the tools to provide punch off the bench once he is fully developed as an NBA player. Will it take him a few seasons to get there? Yes. Will he struggle? Probably.
    I’m not saying my opinion is a fact and everyone else is wrong I just look forward to seeing what he’ll do and I hope for that kind of success for him.
    He’ll probably average a dub-dub or get nice and close to it in the DL….I am pretty much ready to pick him as my PFP. Personal favourite player…. Nash doesnt have many years left he has been my PFP for the duration of his career from Cal U to PHX to Dalmav back to PHX now the last chapter in LA….
