For a while it looked like Boston Celtics second-year guard Carsen Edwards might not be long for the league he had been drafted into with the 33rd overall pick of 2019 NBA draft, a sharpshooter unable to connect in a longer, more athletic context.

Then, the Celtic guard started to find a role with Boston, shooting a career-high 45.1% from the field and scoring 5.1 points and 1.1 boards per game, even earning his first career start. The Purdue product has looked confident in his limited minutes with the Celtics, like he belongs on an NBA team with a chance to continue growing into a valuable rotation player.

How did it happen, and what’s making it work? Check out the video embedded above produced by our friends at The Playgrounder to get a deep dive into what’s helped turn Carsen’s career in the NBA around.
