Default Nikola Jokic makes All-Rookie first team, Emmanuel Mudiay named to Rookie Second Team

Jokić, 6-11, 253, appeared in 80 games (55 starts) in his rookie campaign, averaging 10.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 21.7 minutes per game.

The 20-year-old Serbian finished third in Rookie of the Year voting, ranking fourth in rebounding, fifth in steals, seventh in assists, eighth in scoring and 10th in minutes played. He also recorded 14 double-doubles, which were third best among first year players.

Jokić, who was drafted 41st overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, is the first Nugget to be named to an All-Rookie First Team since Kenneth Faried (2012) and the seventh player in franchise history to appear on an All-Rookie First Team.

Mudiay, 6-5, 200, played in 68 games (66 starts) in his first season, recording 12.8 points, 5.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 30.4 minutes per game.

He ranked first among all rookies in assists, second in minutes, fifth in steals, sixth in scoring and sixth in double-doubles. His 372 total assists not only led all NBA rookies this season, it also ranked second in Nuggets franchise history behind only Jalen Rose (389, 1994-95) for most assists in a debut season.
