Point guard D.J. Augustin became the fifth Charlotte Bobcat to make the NBA All-Rookie team Thursday.

Augustin made second team, tying for the final spot with Portland's Rudy Fernandez. Augustin averaged 11.8 points and 3.5 assists and established himself as one of the NBA's best shooters ninth in 3-point percentage (43.9percent) and sixth in free-throw percentage (89.3percent). Augustin played in 72 games, starting 12.

Emeka Okafor made All-Rookie first-team after the team's initial season. Since then, Raymond Felton, Adam Morrison and Walter Herrmann have been named second-team.

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose was selected rookie of the year, the NBA announced. Memphis guard O.J. Mayo also was a unanimous selection to the All-Rookie team.

Rounding out the first team were Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, New Jersey center Brook Lopez and Miami forward Michael Beasley.

The second team was headed by Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Gordon, who was joined by Minnesota's Kevin Love, Miami's Mario Chalmers, Marc Gasol of the Grizzlies, Fernandez and Augustin

Well, IMO whether he's a starter or a bench player doesn't matter to me becuse he's a very important piece of the puzzle for our team either way.

I'm glad he was selected. He deserved it, especially after he got snubbed for the rookie team at the all-star game.
