Former Bear Jaylen Brown Named to NBA All-Rookie Team

Sixers' Joel Embiid and Dario Saric both named NBA All-Rookie First Team

Brogdon averaged 10.2 points - the lowest of any victor - and led all rookies in assists (4.2) and steals (1.1) per game, while ranking second in 3-point field-goal percentage (.404) and free-throw percentage (.865).

Dario Saric and Joel Embiid were the other two candidates.

Embiid, a 7-foot, 250-pound center, played in 31 games averaging 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.5 blocks while averaging 25 minutes a game.

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

Despite a prolific and successful college career for the Virginia Cavaliers, there wasn't a great deal of hype about guard Malcolm Brogdon entering the 2016 NBA Draft. The 22-year-old turned heads all season and brought life to a young Milwaukee Bucks team that has a lot to look forward to with this young all-star.

The NBA All-Rookie First Team was announced today by the NBA. His averages in points, rebounds and blocks per game were the highest of any National Basketball Association rookie since the Clippers' Blake Griffin, who was named 2011 Rookie of the Year.

The former University Virginia star is also the first ex-college senior to pick up the ROY since Tim Duncan in 1988. I just want to say thank you to everybody. He shot 47 percent from the field, 37 percent from three-point range and 78 percent from the free-throw line. You can see the full teams and voting breakdown below.

Chris Paul of the LA Clippers and Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets round out the squad.

Yes, Brogdon was an integral part of the Bucks' 42-40 record and run to the playoffs, but they did win four of the seven games he didn't play and he was fifth on the team in scoring and third in assists behind Giannis Antetokuonmpo and Matthew Dellavedova.

The All-Rookie Second Team features Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, Phoenix Suns forward Marquese Chriss, Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram and Dallas Mavericks guard Yogi Ferrell.

Antetokounmpo was named the league's Most Improved Player, receiving 80 of 100 first-place votes to become the Bucks' first such victor.
