The NBA announced the two best teams of new players for the 2021/22 season on Wednesday. The choice was made by 100 journalists and media professionals from the United States and Canada.
In addition, voters nominated five players for the ‘First Team’ and five others for the ‘Second Team’, regardless of their position. Thus, two points were awarded for each vote for ‘First Team’ and one for ‘Second Team’.
The first team is led by Toronto Raptors striker Scottie Barnes. After all, the best player of the year could not be left out of the best quintet of the season.
In addition to him, forward Evan Mobley (Cleveland Cavaliers) and defender Cade Cunningham (Detroit Pistons) were also unanimously selected. In addition, Franz Wagner (Orlando Magic) and Jalen Green (Houston Rockets) are also part of the best quintet.
Finally, Herbert Jones (New Orleans Pelicans) and Josh Giddey (Oklahoma City Thunder) both scored well but failed to make it to the first team. In this way, they “left” in the second best quintet.
Additionally, Bones Hyland (Denver Nuggets), Ayo Dosunmu (Chicago Bulls) and Chris Duarte (Indiana Pacers) provide the second rookie team.
