Aquille Carr Rumors
Aquille Carr – once a Baltimore, Maryland/Washington D.C. prep phenom – is finalizing contract terms with the Saint John Mill Rats of the Canada National Basketball League, a source told RealGM. Before entering the June NBA Draft, Carr had played 10 games with the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League. He averaged 10.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 14 minutes per game. Carr left the D-League in January and spent months training for his next professional team – ultimately going undrafted in June.
Carr’s deal with the Saint John Mill Rats holds an escape clause should the 20-year-old become drafted in next season’s D-League draft, a source said. At 5-foot-6, Carr gained national recognition for his skill level and athletic talent while playing high school basketball at Princeton Day Academy in Baltimore. Carr also played in numerous exhibition, training and in-season games in the D.C. area.
Aquille Carr isn’t worried about the NBA draft Thursday night. After a journey from Baltimore to Beltsville to China to Delaware to New York City, the 20-year-old is excited to hopefully take a momentous step in his basketball career. The former Patterson star is not on any mock drafts and is not expected to be drafted, but that doesn’t fluster him. “I’m not really stressing too much about the draft,” Carr said. “I ain’t really been thinking about it. I’ll leave it in God’s hands.”
