Michael Carter-Williams to be Rookie of the Year

Early Saturday afternoon, Michael Kaskey-Blomain of (and Around the Arc) was told that Sixers' G Michael Carter-Williams would be named the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year.

Shortly after, the information was confirmed by, and later, The Inquirer.

Michael Carter-Williams won the NBA’s Rookie of the Month award four out of a possible six times this past season, and it appears as though his rookie season will be capped with another accolade.

Carter-Williams will be named the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year.

The award comes as no surprise, as Carter-Williams led all rookies in rebounding, scoring, assists, steals, and double-doubles, while averaging 16.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Carter-Williams’ inspired play was one of the few bright spots in what was a struggle of a season for the Sixers, who haven’t had a Rookie of the Year award-winner since Allen Iverson. 

‘MC-W,’ as he has been labeled by the Philadelphia faithful, was the 11th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, which he declared for after two seasons at Syracuse.

Now all we need is an official announcement.
