Quantcast

Carter-Williams skys over Olynyk for a rebound.
Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76er is the NBA's Rookie of the Year.  Carter-Williams posted 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game this season, becoming just the third rookie in league history (along with Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertston) to average 16-6-6.  Drafted #11 overall, he's also the first double-digit pick to win the award since Marc Jackson in 1987 (10th).

Here's the complete voting (1st place votes are in parenthesis), with five points awarded for 1st, three for 2nd, and one for 3rd:

Michael Carter Williams 569 (104)
Victor Oladipo 364 (16)
Trey Burke 96 (1)
Mason Plumlee 58 (2)
Tim Hardaway Jr. 23 (1)
Gorgui Dieng 3
Steven Adams 1
Giannis Antetokounmpo 1
Nick Calathes 1

Taken with the 13th selection last June, the Celtics' Kelly Olynyk had a dazzling performance in the summer league, and in October was voted "steal of the draft" by NBA general managers.  Olynyk averaged 8.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists this year, which did not earn him any ROY votes.
