Michael Carter-Williams is an overwhelming favorite to take home Rookie of the Year honors this season, and according to one report, it’s a decision that has already been made, and will be announced next week.
Michael Carter-Williams, the Sixers rookie point guard, will be named the NBA Rookie of the Year, a league source with knowledge of the voting has confirmed to NJ.com.
The award is expected to be announced next week.
