JAHII CARSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

ASU's Carson and Bachynski go undrafted

PHOENIX -- Jahii Carson was considered a mid- to late-first round prospect following his redshirt freshman season at Arizona State and decided to return for one more season in Tempe. A year later, Carson went undrafted. Neither Carson nor fellow ASU product Jordan Bachynski were rafted Thursday, meaning both will likely have to earn an NBA opportunity in the Summer League. Carson...

Carson makes his point for Suns

PHOENIX -- Jahii Carson learned to quit sweatin' the small stuff years ago. While tearing up the club-ball circuit as an East Valley grade-school phenom, it was posited he'd never be big enough. He wouldn't be big enough to dominate at the high-school level. By the time he finished at Mesa High, Jahii was best player in Arizona, hitting opponents for 32 points per game...

Carson takes over in 'must-win' game

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Jahii Carson likes to let the game come to him. When he is at his best, as he was Wednesday, he then proceeds to swallow it whole. Carson had perhaps his signature game of the Pac-12 season when Arizona State needed it the most, scoring 26 points and efficiently running his team to a 76-64 victory over Stanford at Wells Fargo Arena. The victory should all but seal...

Carson hints of sophomore year as 'last go round' at ASU

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It would surprise no one if Arizona State sophomore point guard Jahii Carson opted to turn pro after the 2013-14 season, and Carson seemed to make it semi-official Tuesday, tweeting that this is his "last go round" at ASU. This year at ASU I'm participating I'm every school event. This my last go round time to have fun Jahii Carson (@Jahii_carson1...

The request is the first step in the process toward declaring for the draft but is non-binding. Carson said he intends to make a decision within the next two weeks. At this time my family and I decided...

Carson eager to make up for lost time at ASU

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It should come as no surprise to learn Jahii Carson desperately wanted to be on the floor last season amid the Arizona State men's basketball team's forgettable 10-21 campaign. He was widely regarded as the player to inject life into a struggling program but instead had to sit out a year while academically ineligible. Carson used the lost season as a learning...

Carson ineligible to play for Sun Devils

Top recruit Jahii Carson has been ruled ineligible to play for Arizona State in the 2011-12 season. Carson didn't meet the NCAA's initial academic eligibility standards and retook the ACT test, but the school recently learned he had come up just short and appealed to the NCAA. The NCAA's Eligibility Center ruled on Friday that Carson can't play but will be allowed...
