Michael Carter-Williams headlines NBA All-Rookie team


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.

First team:

Michael Carter-Williams, Philadelphia 76ers

Victor Oladipo, Orlando Magic

Trey Burke, Utah Jazz

Mason Plumlee, Brooklyn Nets

Tim Hardaway Jr., New York Knicks

Second team:

Kelly Olynyk, Boston Celtics

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

Gorgui Dieng, Minnesota Timberwolves

Cody Zeller, Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets

Steven Adams, Oklahoma City Thunder

Of the 10 rookies to be named to the All-Rookie team only Adams from the Thunder is still playing as Oklahoma City is in the Western Conference Finals against the San Antonio Spurs.
