One of the most underrated acquisitions of the NBA off-season was the Toronto Raptors making a trade with the Atlanta Hawks for shooting guard Lou Williams. The move paid off for The Raptors big time. When DeMar DeRozan went down most people thought the Raptors would take a step back. Lou Williams didn’t let that happen, as that’s a major reason why he was named the NBA’s 6th man of the year.
Toronto's Lou Williams won the Sixth Man Award (78 of 130 1st-place votes). Half-season Suns sub Isaiah Thomas was 2nd (33 1st-place votes).
