Suns head coach Mounty Williams had some great things to say about JC, per NBA.com:
“Yeah, he’s a gamer. You know he makes big shots without D.A. (Deandre Ayton) and some of the lineups we had out there, it’s hard to call plays. He is playing off the ball which he doesn’t do sometimes or a lot. For him to come off and takes the shots, for me it’s a biggie, but he makes them and he’s not afraid of them. For me, he is a guy that I can rely on in those moments, he is not afraid of taking big shots.”
Phoenix Suns fans are taking notice of Carter and quickly taking a liking to him and his style.
