Carlton Bragg is a very athletic big man that transferred from Kansas to play for New Mexico. He is a versatile scorer that can do so in a variety of ways. He can garner plenty of scores by taking his man off the dribble, and he also can knock down plenty of mid-range shots.
Plus, he also may be an adequate playmaker. He handles the ball fairly well for a player his size, but he will need to improve his passing ability to collect more assists in games, as well as his defense.
Bragg possesses an intriguing blend of having good size, athleticism, and inside scoring skills, but he’s been dismissed by multiple schools throughout his collegiate career. Because there may be persistent questions regarding his character and inconsistent play throughout his career, Bragg may likely wind up going undrafted, but if he can put his off-court troubles behind him, he could end up having a successful career in professional basketball.
