I don't really see it. He's skilled but not explosive and I think he'll struggle against athletic guys his size, which he almost never faces.

But I'd love to be wrong. He's been great for us and I expect an excellent season from him.

He's not one yet.

I thought his hands have really improved. Good to his game and skils continue to get better.

Unlikely. You need to be a high level athlete, shot blocker, be gigantic, or shoot 3s to make the NBA usually. The exception would be a guy like baynes.. but Carlton is not half the defender he is, and would probably only be listed at 6'8 with the new nba rules

I put maybe just because I'd love to see it happen.

No but that's ok. Hes going to have a solid career here and graduate with a degree. He'll go on to make a Lot of money overseas and he'll be fine. Ive like him from the first time I saw him and he has not disappointed.

Not in today's NBA.

Probably gets a NBA summer league invite, but nothing further

I will be his biggest advocate, but.the way the league has gone, he is exactly the type of player that has trouble finding a place in todays NBA game. I hope I am wrong. Either way, he will have a terrific career overseas and make a great living if that is what he wants.

He’s a poor mans Rod Sellers. That’s not an insult. Rod was an excellent four year big man. But even Sellers had a bit more fluidity and explosion than Josh. Carlton has some skills, but he’s super mechanical in everything he does. That’s not NBA quality.

Certainly if all the SHU players are on Pro teams in the next year or two.

I regret this thread so much.
Why? People have made good points. I am a big Josh Carlton fan. I was thrilled with his production as a Soph. But I have to agree that Josh is probably an overseas pro. There is no shame in that.
