Andrew Carr picks Wake Forest, Forbes adds frontcourt floor-spacer

Andrew Carr is headed to Wake Forest. Steve Forbes and the Demon Deacons landed another talented offensive player in the transfer portal.

The 6-foot-10 stretch-4 started 34 of 35 games this season, while averaging 10.0 points (56.4 FG%), 5.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. It’s not exactly a large sample, but Carr showed he has some stretch to his game, too: 17-of-42 on 3-point attempts (40.5 3P%). According to Synergy Sports, Carr scored 1.06 points per spot-up possession this season.

Overall, Carr scored efficiently from every level on the floor. Carr shot 65.9 percent at the rim, per Bart Torvik’s shot data, including 29 dunks. Carr also shot 45.1 percent on long 2s — with 65.2 percent on those makes coming unassisted.

According to Synergy, Carr scored 1.09 points per post-up possession (64.7 FG%), one of the top numbers in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Last week, Wake Forest landed Marist transfer Jao Ituka, an important source of rim pressure and scoring.

Alondes Williams and Isaiah Mucius remain in the NBA Draft; breakout star Jake LaRavia continues to test the draft waters, too, while his stock rises. No matter how it gets sliced, Wake Forest needed to add some offensive punch. Carr is a step in that direction.
