Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has been named the NBA's Rookie of the Year, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

The team is holding a news conference at 3 p.m. ET, at which it's expected the point guard officially will receive the award.

Rose averaged 16.8 points per game, second to the Memphis Grizzlies' O.J. Mayo among rookies. Rose led all rookies in assists with 6.3 per game and in minutes played with 37 per game.

In seeminly unralted news lilojmayo was found dead in his parents basement today, all signs point to suicide as the cause of death.

Was it close? I thought that OJ Mayo should have been rookie of the year. But Rose won, oh well.

although I was rootin for Mayo early on in the season and even near the end I thought he could still be the ROY, I think Rose pretty much seal the deal with his performance in his playoffs debut, some may even say he seal the deal when the Bulls clinch the playoffs. But I think that wasnt enough reason do to the fact that the Grizz are in West and the Bulls in the east. Anyway congratulations to Rose and I hope the Bulls can turn things around in a few years so they can become contenders again. :applause:

Playoff performances have nothing to do with it. The votes are in before the playoffs start.
