In line for PG duties

Carey is the most likely candidate to take over as the team's full-time starter at point guard in 2019-20, Matthew Gutierrez of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Carey briefly had a taste of the starting point guard role early in his freshman season, as he played 74 minutes and scored 40 points during back-to-back starts spanning from Nov. 15-16. He ultimately conceded the point guard role to either Frank Howard or Tyus Battle as the season advanced into conference play, and didn't record double-digit minutes in any game after Jan. 12. Coach Jim Boeheim typically runs a tight rotation, but what cost Carey minutes was his propensity to hold on to the ball too long and turn it over (1.6 turnovers across 12.2 minutes), in addition to poor shooting percentages (39 percent FG, 17 percent 3-pt, 63 percent FT). Anyone who saw Carey play early in the year knows he can score off the dribble, but those efficiency marks will need to ramp up if he's going to serve as the primary distributor all season long. It seems he'll at least be given the opportunity, which means there's potentially to develop into a major fantasy asset capable of contributing in multiple categories.
