The NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award seemed to be all but over through January due to the stellar play of Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, but since he suffered a season-ending meniscus tear, the waters have been extremely muddied.
Sixers power forward Dario Saric is the -165 favorite at 5Dimes, with Malcolm Brogdon (+235) and Embiid (+454) listed as the only other candidates at the shop.
