Here are the ESPN writers awards picks.  3 have Stevens for COY, 3 have Thomas for MIP and 1 has Smart for 6th man.

How do these awards work?  Do the writers just send in their pick or do the send in a top 3? 
If the former, I think Embiid wins ROY.  If the latter, Brogdon probably does.  Embiid only playing 31 games has been discussed a lot.  Haven't seen anyone mention that Brogdon didn't win a single rookie of the month.  Has there ever been a ROY who didn't win at least 1 ROM?

Surprised by how few votes Brad received for COY.

Also, I'm biased tegarding Embiid, but in another work setting would he not be considered a part-time employee?! Tough choice there for ROY.

Embiid won rookie of the month for November, December and January and had a legitimate case for being an all-star.  Saric won it in February and March but only after Embiid's injury.  I don't see much of an argument for Brogdon.  He'd be a weaker ROY than MCW.  Embiid's part time was better than any other rookie's full time.
