Rockets sign Michael Carter-Williams

Posted: July 7, 2018 -- 11:48 am.

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed free agent guard Michael Carter-Williams.

Carter-Williams (6'6", 190) was originally the 11th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2013 NBA Draft.  He was named Rookie of the Year in 2013-14, becoming the first double-digit draft pick to do so since Mark Jackson in 1987-88.

In 287 career games with 191 starts, Carter-Williams has averaged 11.5 points, 4.9 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.40 steals.  Since entering the league in 2013-14, he is one of 10 players with at least 90 games played, including James Harden and Chris Paul, to have averaged at least 11.0 points per game, 4.0 assists per game, 4.0 rebounds per game, and 1.40 steals per game.

The 26-year-old spent last season with Charlotte, appearing in 52 games with two starts.  He played at least 18 minutes 13 times, averaging 8.4 points per game, 3.3 rebounds per game, 3.0 assists per game, and 1.46 steals per game in those games.
