DeMar DeRozan Named 2017-18 Magic Johnson Award Winner

Starting the offseason off strong, DeMar DeRozan will add a new award to his collection.

On Tuesday, the Toronto Raptors All-Star was named the winner of the 2017-18 Magic Johnson Award as chosen by the Professional Basketball Writers Association. The award is given to those who show excellence both on and off the court, especially by showing humility when dealing with the media and the general public.

“I’m grateful to the reporters and broadcasters who cover our league, who love our game and who communicate with our fans every day. So thank you to the PBWA for this award,” said DeRozan. “It’s very special for an L.A. guy to receive an honour named for Magic.”

The Raptors are entering a difficult offseason, but DeRozan ended his campaign leading the team in scoring, averaging 23.0-points per game and a career high 5.2-assists per game. The Raptors were able to set a new franchise record in wins with 59.
