Brogdon named NBA Rookie of the Year

New York Rangers goalie Antti Raanta plays against the Detroit Red Wings in the second period of an NHL hockey game in Detroit. The Arizona Coyotes have acquired center Dere

Brogdon was the 2nd round pick (36th overall) in the 2016 NBA Draft averaging 10.2 points per game while leading all rookies in assists (4.2 apg) and steals (1.12 spg).

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. Thanks to the great fans of Milwaukee. The three-time All-ACC first-team performer earned consensus second-team All-America honors in 2015.

But Embiid played in just 31 games - 10 shy of a half season and 20 fewer than Kyrie Irving when he won the award in 2012. His assists and steals per game were the most among rookies while his 3-point and free-throw percentages (86.5 percent) ranked second. In 25 games with Sacramento after being acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans on February 20, Hield averaged 15.1 points and 4.1 rebounds and shot 48.0 percent from the field and 42.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Leonard was trying to be the first to win three in a row since Dwight Howard. In May, Antetokounmpo was named Second Team All-NBA, the highest All-NBA Team selection for the Bucks since Moncrief in 1986.

Under D'Antoni's leadership, the Rockets made 1,181 3-pointers this season, breaking the Warriors' record of 1,077 a season ago.




The 22-year-old from Greece also made those improvements while playing point guard and about the same amount of minutes per game. He averaged 17.9 points and 7.3 rebounds over his last games. He is the 11th executive to win the award multiple times.

D'Antoni was named Coach of the Year in 2004-05 with the Phoenix Suns.

Bill Russell has received the first Lifetime Achievement award, responding with some trash talk and then praise for the big men who honored him.

Giannis was sixth in the National Basketball Association in blocks and 11th steals.

Also, a league source said the Sixers hadn't decided if they'll fully guarantee veteran guard Gerald Henderson's $9 million contract next season.
