(Times staff / ERIC HARTLINE)

Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams was named Kia Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month.

He led all first-year players in scoring (17.2 points), assists (7.3), steals (2.92) and minutes (36.2) for his 13 games played in October and November. Carter-Williams is the first Sixers player to win the award since Allen Iverson in April 1997.

“He’s a great player,” said the Magic’s Victor Oladipo, who was part of MCW’s draft class. “He’s going to keep working. That’s the kind of player he is.”

Sacramento's Ben McLemore won the Western Conference Rookie of the Month award.
