After not being selected in Thursday night’s NBA Draft, former Shiloh standout Robert Carter signed a free agent contract Friday with the Golden State Warriors.
Carter turned down chances to be drafted in the second round by both the Atlanta Hawks and the Denver Nuggets because both teams wanted to send him to Europe for more development, according to a CSNMid-Atlantic report citing Carter’s agent.
Carter averaged 12.3 points and 6.9 rebounds last season, his first at Maryland after transferring from Georgia Tech. The 6-foot-9 forward started his first two seasons at Tech before transferring and sitting out the 2014-15 season.
As a high-schooler, Carter played at Thomasville before finishing his career at Shiloh. He was a Daily Post Super Six and all-county selection in 2012 as a senior, when he averaged 19 points and 12 rebounds.
