Sixers' Joel Embiid, Dario Saric snubbed in Rookie of Year voting

Sixers' Joel Embiid and Dario Saric both named NBA All-Rookie First Team

Selected 36th overall by the Bucks, part of a draft class that included LSU's Ben Simmons (Philadelphia), Duke's Brandon Ingram (L.A. Lakers), and Oklahoma's Buddy Hield (New Orleans) it was the unassuming Brogdon who finished atop the class, becoming the first second-round pick to win rookie of the year honors since 1966.

Giannis Antetokounmpo won the Most Improved Player award, following Malcolm Brogdon's victory for Rookie of the Year to open the show on Monday night.

Brogdon was the odd-on favorite in Vegas to win, and he was able to benefit from those who couldn't vote for Embiid because of his lack of minutes, couldn't pull for Saric because of Embiid or couldn't vote for either because, well, they're on the Sixers. The Bucks roster includes guards Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker, both of whom averaged over 20 points per game in 2016-17, as well as forward Khris Middleton, who scored almost 15 per night in an injury shortened campaign. He was sidelined for two seasons with injuries, and finally played this season in the National Basketball Association.

Brogdon eventually went on to play in 75 games for the Bucks, starting in 28 games.

Milwaukee Bucks head coach, Jason Kidd, said in an interview that Brogdon deserves to be named the Rookie of the Year because of the impact he has made despite being drafted in the second-round. The award is for the rookie who had the best year, as in a full season.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Brogdon received 64 of the 100 first-place votes. He is the first ACC Player of the Year and NBA Rookie of the Year since Elton Brand.

The first seven picks of the 2017 draft were freshmen, followed by an 18-year-old prospect from France, followed by four more freshmen and two sophomores. On Dec. 31, he recorded the first triple-double of his career, scoring 15 points, and adding 12 assists and 11 rebounds. I just want to say thank you to everybody.

Brogdon also shot 40.4 percent from 3-point range and shot 86.5 percent from the foul line. There were four global players on the first team for the first time in the award's history. Now he moves forward as a valued piece of the core of a team that is a rising contender in the Eastern Conference.
