    MCWFormer Syracuse star Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers won the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy as the 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year.

    Carter-Williams, who became only the third rookie since 1950-51 to lead all rookies in scoring, rebounding and assists, received 104 of a possible 124 first-place votes from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada, finishing with 569 points.

    Former Indiana star Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic finished second with 364 points (16 first-place votes) and former Michigan standout Trey Burke of the Utah Jazz finished third with 96 points (one first place vote). Players were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote. 

    Former Duke big man Mason Plumlee of the Nets and former Michigan standout Tim Hardaway Jr. of the Knicks finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

    Carter-Williams averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds, joining Oscar Robertson (1960-61) and Alvan Adams (1975-76) as the only players since 1950-51 to pace all rookies in those three categories. He also joined Robertson and Magic Johnson as the only rookies in NBA history to average at least 16.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists. Carter-Williams also led all rookies in steals (1.86 spg, sixth in NBA).
