Bucks’ Brogdon NBA Rookie Of Year; Giannis Most Improved

Antigo, WI, United States /

(New York, NY) ¬†— ¬†Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks has been named the N-B-A’s rookie of the year — and Bucks’ forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the league’s most improved player. Both were honored Monday night at the N-B-A’s inaugural awards show in New York. Brogdon received 64 of the 100 first place media votes as he became the lowest draft pick since 1958 to win league’s rookie of the year honor with game averages of ten points and four assists. Brogdon, a second round pick from Virginia last summer, was only the second Buck to receive the top rookie award besides Kareem Abdul Jabbar in 1970 — and Brodgon was a unanimous pick to the all N-B-A rookie squad. Antetokounmpo received 80 of the 100 first place votes as the league’s most improved player — and he was named to the N-B-A’s all defensive second team, the first Buck to get that honor since Alvin Robertson in 1991.
