First Take for Michael Carter-Williams

Keep up with Syracuse's former starting point guard by taking a look at how he faired in Game 1 of Orlando Summer League and hear his thoughts inside.

The Syracuse alum turned Philadelphia 76ers' point guard Michael Carter-Williams has put on a Sixers' jersey and took to the floor as a professional basketball player for the first time.

He ran the point for Philadelphia against the Houston Rockets for the majority of the time he was on the floor, sharing the backcourt most often with Temple alum Khalif Wyatt.

Playing in 34 of the 40 minutes, Carter-Williams finished with 26 points despite not shooting the ball well. Going 8-for-23 from the field, he scored 10 of his points from the charity stripe making 10 of his 11 free throw attempts.

The Syracuse Orange alum continued to display an ability to find his teammates in areas where they excel, ending the game with eight assists.

On the defensive end, Carter-Williams had five of his seven rebounds and one steal.

A problem that arose while at Syracuse did flare up again, however, with Carter-Williams committing nine turnovers.
