NBA Combine Competitive Action Recap: Day One
May 12, 2016

Robert Carter, Junior, PF/C, Maryland
22 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 turnovers, 4 steals, 1 block, 6 fouls, 6-12 2P, 2-3 3P, 26.5 minutes

Robert Carter may have helped himself as much as any other player to participate in Thursday's 5-on-5 scrimmages. The 22-year-old big man showed his versatile offensive skill set, knocking down pick and pop jumpers out to 3-point range, putting the ball on the deck, scoring with jump hooks in the post and competing defensively and on the glass. Carter showed flashes of offensive brilliance during his junior year at Maryland, but with a glut of big men and a very talented overall roster, he was a bit inconsistent in his production. At 6' 8.5” with a 7' 3.25” wingspan Carter fits the ‘pass, dribble, shoot' mold that teams are looking for in today's NBA. While Carter shined on the offensive end on Thursday, he still has a ways to go defensively.

Weighing as much as 280 pounds during his two years at Georgia Tech, Carter has done a great job slimming down to 251 pounds and 12.5% body fat, but he still has a ways to go before becoming an adequate perimeter and ball screen defender. All in all Carter most certainly showed his NBA value in front of all 30 teams, and should be considered a solid second-round prospect moving forward.

NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 NBA Draft Prospect TV Schedule: Thursday
March 23, 2016

The matchup to watch from a NBA perspective is at the power forward position, where Ellis will match up with second round prospects Robert Carter (#57) and Jake Layman (#50). Carter is a long and bulky big man with an impressive skill-level, capable of scoring inside on the block or from behind the 3-point line, but is extremely limited defensively. His ability to slow down Ellis will not only play a big factor in this contest, it will also present a major opportunity for Carter to prove to NBA scouts that he is not as much of a defensive liability as people think.

USA Basketball U19 World Championship Training Camp Report
June 17, 2013

Robert Carter was actually one of the most skilled big men at this training camp, even if his deficiencies in other areas gave other participants at his position an edge in terms of the style of play the coaching staff was looking to implement.

Carter can put the ball in the basket from anywhere on the floor, as he can shoot the ball from the perimeter (even out to the 3-point line), attack his opponent off the dribble, or operate with his back to the basket with smooth footwork and a variety of fakes and spin-moves, even making some interesting passes from time to time out of the high or low post. He has excellent instincts on this end of the floor, to go along with soft hands and reliable touch, making him a real mismatch threat at this stage of his development as a modern day power forward.

Unfortunately, Carter also has his fair share of weaknesses, many of which are correctable, but are not in line with this team's philosophy. For one, he showed up significantly out of shape, as it didn't take long until the altitude of Colorado Springs took the wind out of him. His intensity level in general leaves a lot to be desired, as you regularly see him jogging up and down the court lackadaisically, not having too many qualms about getting beat up the floor by opposing big men. His defense and rebounding weren't up to par with some of the other big men in this setting, largely due to his average motor.

All in all, Carter is a prospect NBA teams will certainly be monitoring to see how he continues to progress. His offensive skill-level at the power forward position makes him a unique prospect, but he will have to make a commitment to bringing more effort and paying attention to the other parts of his game if he's to reach his full potential as a basketball player.

Boost Mobile Elite 24: Scouting Reports (Part One)
September 6, 2011

Matt Kamalsky

One of the most skilled big men at the Boost Mobile Elite 24, Robert Carter (#18 Scout, #21 ESPN, #28 Rivals) is a wide bodied power forward who can score both inside and out.

Standing 6'8, Carter has good size for the four spot, but his frame still has room for improvement. He's carrying around some excess weight which limits his speed and leaping ability, but should have plenty of time to improve his physique in the coming years.

Carter may not be a terribly explosive athlete, but he's one of the more instinctive scorers in the 2012 class, in the mold of Trey Thompkins. He flashes the ability to step out of the perimeter and knock down mid-range jumpers, but appears equally as comfortable using his strong frame around the rim, where he displays smooth footwork and impressive body control. On a few notable occasions, Carter even flashed a knack for using ball-fakes to put the ball on the floor and create his own shot from the midrange, which is something you don't see every day from big men his age.

At the basket, Carter has terrific hands and uses a combination of touch, footwork, and strength to score. He was one of the more polished one-on-one interior players at the Boost Mobile Elite 24, but struggled at times when asked to finish in traffic around the more athletic big men he was matched up with.

Defensively, Carter displays terrific timing and, but his lack of great quickness and leaping ability limits the impact he makes against more athletic competition around the rim. Carter's strength helps him hold position on the block, but his current build won't help him step out and defend the perimeter.

While the Georgia native is not going to wow anyone with his athleticism at the next level, he has a unique skill set for a player his age. With improved conditioning, Carter should be an impact player in college who will surely draws looks from NBA scouts by the time his collegiate days are over.
