Michael Carter-Williams has had an interesting start to his NBA career. He was the main attraction on an under-talented, up-tempo Sixers team his rookie year, and the unbridled opportunity provided for him to put up stats on that squad led to him being selected as the League’s Rookie of the Year. Despite the accolade, the Sixers were never completely sold on him and his trade to Milwaukee was simply confirmation of such a fact after months of speculation that dated back to the 2014 Draft.
Whether or not Carter-Williams could have eventually thrived on a contending Sixers team is a moot point at this point, as he is now the playing for Jason Kidd and the Milwaukee Bucks. Heading into his third season in the League, and his first full season with the Bucks, several questions still surround Carter-Williams and his ultimate potential as an NBA player. The upcoming season will be huge for the former Sixer in terms of establishing himself, and demonstrating exactly what kind of player he can be in his career moving forward.
