HoopsHype Michael Carter-Williams rumors

December 9, 2013 Updates

Carter-Williams was released from the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania Sunday, after being admitted Thursday with an infection on the front of his right knee. He was treated there by UPenn's infectious disease specialist Neil Fishman and Sixers team physician Brian Sennett. The injury stemmed from contact with another player Dec. 1 at Detroit. It's unlikely he'd be available Monday against the Clippers. For now, the 21-year-old Carter-Williams is on oral antibiotics. The Sixers are waiting for the soreness in the knee to go down before they consider re-inserting the point guard into the lineup. Sixers Dish

Michael-Carter Williams and Victor Oladipo made NBA history by becoming the first pair of rookies to have a triple-double in the same game. It was only the third time in NBA history that more than one rookie had a triple-double on the same day, but not necessarily in the same game. The other two occurrences were Tim Hardaway and David Robinson on February 2, 1990, and Grant Hill and Jason Kidd on April 7, 1995. ESPN.com

Safe to say MCW is about to be named Philly's first Rookie of the Month since Allen Iverson back in April 1997. Equally safe to say Sixers fans are watching what happens with New Orleans as closely as their own team with the Pels owing them a first-rounder in June unless it falls in the top five. ESPN.com

Nowadays, Carter-Zegarowski and her best friend, Tracie Tracy, are running his management team. They are taking a proactive approach to make sure he doesn't spend all his money in a couple of years. His rookie contract guarantees him $4.5 million over his first two seasons. He could make a total of $10 million if the Sixers pick up the final two seasons of his contract. But his salary is deposited into a trust he can't touch for three years. Carter-Williams is living off endorsement deals with Nike and Panini trading cards. That's just one of the benefits of having caring parents. Philadelphia Inquirer

NBA executive No. 1: "I would think about moving Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes. And that's only if this winning continues. I don't know how long it can. This is the time of year when the poor teams -- if they're going to win games -- win a few because the guys on the team still believe they can win. Midway through the season, they won't have the same amount of confidence once they realize they're not a good team. So I would be stunned if they can sustain this. Besides Michael Carter-Williams, Turner, Hawes and Thaddeus Young, they've got nobody. There is no way, if I were Hinkie, I would begin to think this is a nucleus I can build around. No way. Not right now. I thought before the season they were going to win less than 10 games. Their bench guys weren't even that good in college. ESPN.com
