Malcolm Brogdon earns himself NBA 'Rookie of the Year' award

The NBA All-Rookie First Team consists of Milwaukee's Malcolm Brogdon (200 points), Philadelphia's Dario Saric (200 points) and Joel Embiid (171 points), Sacramento's Buddy Hield (154 points), and New York's Willy Hernangomez (128 points).

On the season, Brogdon averaged 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

In claiming one of the NBA's most prestigious accolades, Brogdon joins Woody Sauldsberry as the only other second round pick to win that honor. Embiid played just 31 games but averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.5 blocks in just 25.4 minutes per game.

Before joining the Bucks, Brogdon played four seasons at Virginia for coach Tony Bennett.

Since the lunar Islamic calendar and the traditional Gregorian calendar differ, the celebration falls on different dates every year.

Earlier in the season when Brogdon was picking up steam as a Rookie of the Year candidate, he requested that the Bucks make a charitable donation rather than spend money for his ROY campaign.

He also made a little bit of history by becoming the first Houston player to win the award in his first season with the team.

Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon received unanimous votes to be named to the 2017 All-Rookie first team. It's not an award for health, though, and the margin between Embiid's production and that of Brogdon - even with Milwaukee's more successful season - is far too great to warrant favoring the Bucks' youngster for an award that's based on production.

Also at the show, Mike D'Antoni was then voted Coach of the Year, the second time he has won the award.
