Sixers' Joel Embiid, Dario Saric named to NBA All-Rookie First Team

Elias Hubbard | 27 June, 2017, 11:21

Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks will learn Monday night if he's been voted the NBA's Rookie of the Year.

But Embiid played in just 31 games - 10 shy of a half season and 20 fewer than Kyrie Irving when he won the award in 2012.

In helping the Warriors to their second National Basketball Association title in three seasons, Green garnered 198 points overall and 99 first-team votes to narrowly edge Gobert (196/97) and Leonard (192/93). "The previous record was three worldwide players on the NBA All-Rookie First Team". Tony Allen (Memphis), Danny Green (San Antonio), Anthony Davis (New Orleans) and Andre Roberson (Oklahoma City) were also Second Team All-Defensive Team selections.

The argument as to who will win NBA Rookie of the Year has come to an end.

The Rookie of the Year is somewhere on this list. He led all qualified rookies in points per game and was second in field-goal and free-throw percentage.

Both players received all 100 first-team votes from a panel of sports writers and broadcasters. Embiid had 20 or more points 19 times in his first season.

Brogdon had many memorable moments including a triple-double in his second start against the Bulls and his game-winning shot against the Celtics. Despite playing almost the same number of minutes per game in 2016-17 (35.6) as he did in 2015-16 (35.3), Antetokounmpo increased his scoring average from 16.9 points per game, to 22.9 points per game this season.

Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks is the NBA's Rookie of the Year.

Brown was joined on the All-Rookie Second Team by Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, Phoenix Suns forward Marquese Chriss, Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram and Dallas Mavericks guard Yogi Ferrell.

Brogdon earned unanimous consensus first-team All-America and NABC Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2016 after becoming the first player to be named ACC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year in the same season.
