On the season, Brogdon averaged 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

Embiid and his Philadelphia 76ers teammate Dario Saric were finalists for the Rookie of the Rookie of the Year honor.

A second-round pick (36th overall) in the 2016 NBA Draft, Brogdon became the first Bucks rookie ever to record a regular-season triple-double when he posted 15 points and career highs of 12 assists and 11 rebounds against the Chicago Bulls on December 31, 2016.

Brogdon was a backup at the University of Virginia in his freshman season, but unlike 2017 National Basketball Association draftees Harry Giles (Duke) and Zach Collins (Gonzaga), he wasn't coveted enough to flip that setback into being a first-round pick. "That it can be done, that it takes a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of sacrifice and a lot of good decisions", said Brogdon, who was a three-time first-team All-ACC player at Virginia, and was the 2016 ACC Player of the Year. He was a second round pick (No. 36 overall) from Virginia in the 2016 NBA Draft.

After slipping to the second round of the NBA Draft a year ago, Malcolm Brogdon was named Rookie of the Year at the NBA Awards show on Monday. There were four worldwide players on the first team for the first time in the award's history.


The Magic made Saric the No. 12 pick in the 2014 draft before trading him to Sam Hinkie and the Sixers in exchange for No. 12 selection Elfrid Payton, a 2017 first-round pick and a 2015 second-rounder. He is the first ACC Player of the Year and NBA Rookie of the Year since Elton Brand. Brogdon played in 74 games, averaging 26.5 minutes per night while helping Milwaukee reach the Eastern Conference playoffs. Thanks to Coach (Tony) Bennett for a great education in basketball and for making me better.

Brown was joined on the All-Rookie Second Team by Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, Phoenix Suns forward Marquese Chriss, Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram and Dallas Mavericks guard Yogi Ferrell.

Golden State's Draymond Green was the leading vote-getter for the All-Defensive team.

Yes, Brogdon was an integral part of the Bucks' 42-40 record and run to the playoffs, but they did win four of the seven games he didn't play and he was fifth on the team in scoring and third in assists behind Giannis Antetokuonmpo and Matthew Dellavedova.
