Malcolm Brogdon named NBA Sixth Man of the Year

Malcolm Brogdon was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year after a stellar first season with the Boston Celtics. The guard had an outstanding contribution from the bench to achieve the second position of the Eastern Conference.

The guard arrived from the Indiana Pacers in July via trade for a 2023 first-round draft pick and the low-contract combination of Aaron Nesmith, Daniel Theis, Nik Stauskas, Malik Fitts and Juwan Morgan.

The 2017 Rookie of the Year had put together a rare season of shooting 50% from the field, 40% from 3-point range and 90% from free throws in 2018-19 to earn a huge free agent deal with the Pacers. After the transfer, he once again showed his great shooting level to contribute in his first season with the Celtics.

Without starts in 67 games played, Brogdon averaged 14.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his 26.0 minutes per game, shooting 48.4% from the field, 44.4% from three-point range and 87.0% from the free throw line.

These numbers earned him the award after a great performance in the regular season. Recently, the guard returned to the field to play his first playoff duels after missing the first game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Brogdon recovered from a back injury and, for now, is averaging 9 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in 25 minutes of play after two games played in the playoffs in the series that Boston leads 3-0 against the Georgia franchise .
