Minnesota guard Marcus Carr makes announcement on future with Gophers
Minnesota point guard Marcus Carr has made an announcement regarding his future with the Golden Gophers.
On Monday night, the 6-foot-2 guard announced on his Instagram play that he has decided to enter his name in the 2020 NBA Draft. He will, however, wait until he receives an evaluation and more information before making a final decision. Carr is leaving the option to return open.
“After speaking to my family, we have decided that I will be entering my name in this upcoming 2020 NBA Draft,” Carr wrote. “My intentions are to stay in the draft and pursue a professional career in the NBA. However, during this process I will be retaining my college eligibility status by not signing with an agent.”
Carr, a sophomore, was a do-it-all guard for the Golden Gophers last season. He averaged 15.4 points,6.7 assists and 5.3 rebounds for the year, playing in 31 games. He also shot 39.3 percent from the floor and 36.1 percent from 3-point range. Carr also averaged just under one steal per game.
Carr is the second Gopher to declare for the NBA Draft, joining center Daniel Oturu.
