Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams will be named the NBA Rookie of the Year, according to a report Saturday on NJ.com.
The award is expected to be announced next week.
Carter-Williams averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 6.2 rebounds as one of the few bright spots in the Sixers' dismal 19-63 campaign.
Drafted with the 11th overall pick out of Syracuse, Carter-Williams was the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month four times this season.
