LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Rookie of the Year Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies was the lone unanimous selection to the NBA’s All-Rookie Team that was announced Tuesday, and despite playing just 24 of the New Orleans Pelicans’ 72 games, former Duke star Zion Williamson also made the team. Charlotte Hornets first-round pick P.J. Washington earned a spot on the second teams, as did Bulls guard Coby White, who played at UNC.

Morant was a first-team pick on all 100 ballots. Joining him and Williamson on the first team were Miami guard Kendrick Nunn, Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke and Golden State forward Eric Paschall.

Also on the second team  were Heat guard Tyler Herro, Toronto guard Terence Davis II and Washington forward Rui Hachimura.

Paschall edged Herro by one point for the last first-team spot.
