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.

From Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com:

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.

In what is widely considered to be a down rookie class in terms of immediately impactful individual contributions, Carter-Williams is likely to win in a landslide once the official voting is announced.

The Sixers rookie averaged 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals in 34.5 minutes per contest, while starting in all 70 of his appearances.

On our unofficial ballots, Carter-Williams was first on all three, followed by Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke, and Mason Plumlee.
