Michael Carter-Williams will win Rookie of Year awardPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer reporting:
No surprise here. Michael Carter-Williams will be named the NBA’s rookie of the year this week, sources have confirmed.
The 76ers point guard’s receiving the award, first reported Saturday afternoon by Philly.com, will be perhaps the most obvious and anticlimactic outcome of the 2014 NBA awards season.
Carter-Williams joins Allen Iverson (1996-97) as Sixers rookies of the year after posting one of the best campaigns by a first-year player in league history.
It was a season in which the 6-foot-6, 185-pounder was mentioned in the same breath as Hall of Famers Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson.
