Mason Plumlee finished 4th in NBA Rookie of the Year voting

Mike Ehrmann

Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams, as expected, won the NBA Rookie of the Year award, the NBA announced on Monday. He finished with 106 of a possible 124 first-place votes. Victor Oladipo finished in second place, with Trey Burke ending up in third.

Brooklyn Nets rookie center Mason Plumlee finished fourth, pulling in two first place votes, five second place and 33 third place votes. Sean Deveney of Sporting News and Sherrod Blakely of Comcast SportNet put Plumlee first on their ballot. Plumlee, who started in 22 games, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 18.2 minutes per game, was a major spark for the Nets when Kevin Garnett missed 20 games in the second half of the season. He was the only player in the top four to play on a winning team and the only one of the four to be taken outside the lottery, at No. 22.

Plumlee led all rookies Player Efficiency Rating, by a fairly wide margin, posting a 19.09. He also finished second in Estimated Wins Added, among all rookie, coming in just behind Michael Carter-Williams. The Nets seven-footer also led all rookies in shooting percentage and dunks, finishing 10th overall. A fantastic season for Plumlee, and well-deserved recognition, especially considering Nets GM Billy King expected him to spend plenty of time this season in the D-League.
