A memorable player returns to the NBA stage.
Reporter Shams Charania of the local media’The Athletic’ said, “The Orlando Magic have signed free agent Michael Carter-Williams to a two-year contract.” The second year contract is a team option deal, meaning Carter Williams’ contract ends in one year if Orlando doesn’t want to extend the contract.
Orlando is no stranger to Carter Williams. Carter Williams has experience playing for Orlando from 2019 to 2021. At the time, Carter Williams’ performance inside the game was insignificant in Orlando, but it is said that he had a good influence on Orlando’s young players outside the game. In the 2020-2021 season, Carter Williams averaged 8.8 points, 4.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 31 games for Orlando.
Currently, Orlando is in 13th place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 25-36. Orlando is rebuilding with promising players such as Paolo Bankero, Franz Wagner, and Markel Fultz. The guards also have many prospects who need to get playing time, such as Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs. Orlando, where team performance isn’t that important right now, is likely to use Carter Williams as a mentor in the locker room rather than using him in the game. 먹튀검증
Carter Williams was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. At the time, the 2013 NBA Draft was considered poor, and high expectations were not placed on the rookies. In such a situation, the player who appeared like a comet is Carter Williams.
Carter Williams had an all-time great NBA debut. In the opening game, Carter Williams, who met the Miami Heat led by LeBron James, recorded 22 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds and 9 steals to lead the team to victory. At that time, Philadelphia left a stronger impression because it was expected to be in the lower ranks. Following his momentum, Carter Williams received the Rookie of the Year award for his good performance throughout the season. But his rookie season was Carter Williams’ prime. After his rookie season, Carter Williams, who had been sluggish and repeatedly released, returned to Orlando and returned to the NBA stage.
