As Nando De Colo left for ASVEL, the Fenerbahce needed reinforcements on his rear lines. Thus, after recruiting Scottie Wilbekin, the reigning Turkish champions announced the arrival of Carsen Edwards.
Selected in 33rd position during the 2019 Draft, this pocket “combo guard” (1m80) has never managed to win across the Atlantic, both in Boston and Detroit (3.7 career average points). On the other hand, in the G-League, he knew how to make all his qualities as a scorer speak, finishing top scorer of the last season, with his 26.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists on average (at 46% on shots, 38% at 3 -pts and 83% in throws).
Like Mike James, Elie Okobo or Shane Larkin, Carsen Edwards could therefore take advantage of a successful experience in Europe to raise his popularity rating. And so better come back to the NBA in the next few years?
