Embiid, Saric named to NBA All-Rookie First Team

Embiid, Saric named to NBA All-Rookie First Team

He led all qualified rookies in points per game and was second in field-goal and free-throw percentage. Two points were awarded for First Team votes and one point for Second Team votes. He only made it 31 games, before a knee injury sidelined him for the rest of the season. We all wish he'd been healthy enough to play just a little longer.

Brogdon was there, from start to finish, playing in 75 games. With the Pelicans (57 games), Hield averaged 8.6 points per game while shooting 39.3% from the floor and 36.9% from the perimeter.

The 2016-17 All-Rookie teams released Monday.

As rare at is for a player who was selected outside the top-10 to be the victor of this award - Michael Carter-Williams, a man with Bucks and 76er connections is the only exception since Mark Jackson won in 1988 - Brogdon takes that even one step further.

The Celtics won 53 games and finished first in the Eastern Conference regular season before losing to the Cavs in a five-game Eastern Conference Final series.

That's why this decision was so hard, and why many people can look at the same stats for the same three players and come up with a totally different conclusion. "So well-deserved, Rookie of the Year".

As a matter of fact, Embiid had the strongest stats among finalists for the award.

For the season, Saric averaged 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

On Sunday, the 2005-06 Greece team - European champions in 2005 and runners-up to Spain at the 2006 Worlds - played a side which included brothers Giannis and Thanassis Antetokounmpo, and American Euroleague star Kyle Hines. Point is, they were a good team and Brogdon made them better.

Saric is next at 3/1, while Embiid is 9/1, per Bovada. Embiid had 20 or more points 19 times in his first season. Embiid also averaged the most rebounds and blocks, while Saric was third in rebounds, just behind Covington.

Brogdon beat out both Sixers rookies, likely because of his impact over the course of the season for Milwaukee and because Embiid did not play the full season.

At least Philly has two players with a great shot to win the trophy next year.
