Malcom Brogdon Wins Sixth Man Of The Year Award
Malcolm Brogdon has been named the 22-23 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
Brogdon averaged 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists; among those who played primarily off the bench this season.
Brogdon received 60 of 100 first-place votes and 408 points overall from a media panel. Immanuel Quickley was second at 326, getting 34 first-place votes. Bobby Portis had six first-place votes and 97 points.
“This is such an honor. It has definitely been a transition for me, coming from Indiana to Boston,” said Brogdon, who had started every game the past four years in the NBA before embracing his role to come off the bench when he was acquired by the Celtics. “My last two seasons, they weren’t super successful, so for me that was another gut check for me in understanding that maybe I’m not a No. 1 guy but I can be a great No. 2, 3 or 4.”
