2. Devin Carter, guard, Providence

Age: 22

Size: 6-2, 6-9 wingspan, 193 pounds

Signature strength: Competitive defender who has that dog in him

Notable weakness: Might not have lead guard potential

Carter might be the draft’s biggest riser after a strong junior year and showing off his elite athleticism at the draft combine. Scouts laud his intangibles and leadership skills and his fans tend to believe his 38% mark from 3-point range after two sub-30% seasons from deep is a trend and not an aberration. 

In Miami, Carter’s on-ball defense, hustle and toughness would fit seamlessly in the locker room. The fact that he’s the son of former Heat player and assistant coach Anthony Carter doesn’t hurt, either.
