DeMar DeRozan has been named the winner of the 2017-18 Magic Johnson Award by the Professional Basketball Writers Association.
The award honors the player who best combines excellence on the basketball court with cooperation and dignity in dealing with the media and the 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."
DeRozan averaged a team-best 23.0 points and a career-high 5.2 assists while helping the Raptors to a franchise-record 59 wins during the 2017-18 campaign.
