Michael Carter-Williams headlines this year’s NBA All-Rookie team as the Philadelphia 76ers point guard and Rookie of the Year was the only unanimous selection, receiving 125 first-place votes.
Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo received 124 first-place votes to land beside Carter-Williams on the first team backcourt. Here is the rest of the first team and the second team.
One notable absence is Michael Bennett who was the No. 1 pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former UNLV star was a surprise selection as the top overall pick in last year’s draft and he had a simply dreadful rookie season as he averaged 4.3 points and three rebounds and was often booed in front of the home crowd. He may go down as one of the biggest draft busts in the last 25 years.
