All kinds of new faces on the roster this season, and that includes rookie guard Michael Carter-Williams. The first round draft pick out of Syracuse is adjusting to life in the NBA here in his first pro training camp.

“Things are going well,” Carter-Williams tells KYW Newsradio. “I’m learning a lot. It’s been a long couple of days, so I’m just trying to learn, keep my legs healthy, just get treatment and stuff.”

Carter-Williams averaged nearly 12 points a game last season as a sophomore for the Orange and he says the NBA game takes some adjusting too.

“I think the game’s a lot faster and you’ve got to make decisions quicker,” Carter-Williams says. “And that’s something that I’m working on.”

This is also the first Sixers training camp run by new head coach Brett Brown.

“He’s teaching me a lot,” Carter-Williams says of Brown. “He’s a great coach, we all respect him and really listen to what he has to say.”

The Sixers will open their preseason schedule overseas with a couple of games in Europe.

“I can’t wait to go over there and experience that lifestyle and play and experience the game,” Carter-Williams says.

Preseason opener will be Sunday in Bilbao, Spain, against Bilbao and that will be followed by a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Manchester, England, on Tuesday, October 8th.
