Baltimore native Aquille Carr, a 5-6 point guard who many consider the top player in the class of 2013, traveled to Milan, Italy a couple of weeks ago to take part in the Junior International Tournament. While out there, he helped lead the USA team to a gold medal. But that’s not all he returned home with. After turning heads with his performance, which included a 45-point outing, Lottomatica Virtus Roma — the same club that Milwaukee Bucks star Brandon Jennings played during his historic season in Europe — offered Carr a $750,000 annual contract. Carr is still weighing his options, but the possibility of him following in the footsteps of Jennings and Jeremy Tyler is a reality. Another decision that could shake the basketball world could very well be in the horizon!
