Malcolm Brogdon’s rookie year accolades have started to roll in with the Milwaukee Bucks guard being named to the NBA’s All-Rookie team. Brogdon is one of two players - along with Philadelphia’s Dario Saric - that was a unanimous selection to the first team.

Also on the NBA All-Rookie First Team are Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, Sacramento’s Buddy Hield, and New York’s Willy Hernangomez.

Brogdon finished his first NBA season averaging 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 46% from the field and 40% from three. In Milwaukee’s six postseason games, Malcolm shot an impressive 47% from three.

Tonight, the Kia NBA Rookie of the Year will be announced during the NBA Awards show, which will be televised by TNT and air at 9pm (ET). Brogdon is one of three finalists (along with Saric and Embiid) for the award.
