Who is in the 2021/22 NBA All-Rookie First Team and All-Rookie Second Team?
The NBA announced its All-Rookie teams on Wednesday, with the members of the First Team boasting point averages not seen since the mid-1980s.
Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes was joined by award finalists Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley in the All-Rookie First Team on Wednesday, as the NBA revealed its All-Rookie teams for the 2021/22 season.
Alongside Barnes, Cunningham, Mobley – who were all unanimous selections – the First Team also features Orlando Magic forward Franz Wagner and Houston Rockets guard Jalen Green.
Cunningham, Green, Mobley and Barnes were the first four picks of the 2021 NBA Draft, while Wagner was the eighth selection.

They were also the only five rookies to average at least 15 points per game this season, putting a gap between themselves and sixth-highest scorer Chris Duarte at 13.1 points per game. It is the first time since at least 1985 that all five members of the All-Rookie First Team have each averaged at least 15 points per game.
