Sixers' Michael Carter-Williams named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month


The 76ers’ Michael Carter-Williams has been named the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for the second time in the first three months of his career.

Carter-Williams averaged 16.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists in 17 games in January, earning the honor for the second time this season. He scored a career-high 33 points at Cleveland Jan. 7. In addition to the month of January, Carter-Williams also won it for his work in October/November to open the season.

The 6-6 point guard and Allen Iverson are the only Sixers ever to win multiple Rookie of Month honors.

Carter-Williams is averaging 17.3 points, 6.6 assists and 5.4 rebounds. Only three other rookies in league history – Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Steve Francis – have averaged those totals or better in their first professional seasons.
