Rookie of the Year



PG Michael Carter-Williams (76ers)

Carter-Williams averages 16.9ppg, 6.3apg, 2.04spg and 5.5rpg as the most talented player on a bad 76ers team which fights every night. He puts up consistent numbers despite only being a rookie and the teams knowing that he is the player to stop. He has used his long wingspan and height to become a defensive problem for opposing PGs and he has been key to the defense the team plays. He has the ability to dominate all over the court as evidenced by his two triple doubles on the season. The only negatives against him are that his jumper is unorthodox, he could use improvement in all his percentages across the board, and he has been injured. However, he is a legit talent a good building block for this franchise.



Honorable Mention – SG Victor Oladipo (Magic)

Oladipo averages 13.9ppg, 4.0apg, 4.3rpg, and 1.5spg as he continues to show a well-rounded game like he did in college and gives all he got on hustle plays. He has been used off the bench, in the starting lineup, at different positions, and asked to do a variety of things, but Oladipo continues to get better and breakout for big performances. His only negatives are that he can be inconsistent and he has been injured, but the inconsistencies will be cured with more reps and stable playing time going forward.
