Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon and Philadelphia 76ers forward Dario Saric have been unanimously selected to the 2016-17 NBA All-Rookie First Team, the NBA announced today. Both players received all 100 First Team votes from a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. Joining Brogdon and Saric on the First Team are 76ers center Joel Embiid (171 points, 82 First Team votes), Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield (154 points, 63 First Team votes) and New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez (128 points, 44 First Team votes).
And, most impressive: Brogdon shoots almost 52 percent from the floor in fourth quarters, a figure topped among rookies who’ve played 30 or more games this season only by the Knicks’ Willy Hernangomez (52.7 percent). By contrast, Saric has shot 43 percent from the floor in the fourth. And while Saric has put up very good numbers in Philly, Brogdon has been a major catalyst for the Bucks during their second-half resurgence and playoff drive.
Willy Hernangomez has a rich summer ahead — a chance to work with his “idol,” Grizzlies star center Marc Gasol, every day for more than a month. Gasol has committed to playing for the Spanish National team in the European Championships. Hernangomez, the Knicks’ stud rookie center, wants to play but hasn’t yet gotten permission from team brass.
