Simmons tops Mitchell, Tatum for Rookie of the Year

Simmons tops Mitchell, Tatum for Rookie of the Year

"We are fortunate to have a head coach in Brett Brown and dynamic young star in Ben Simmons who have rich histories and foundations in Australia", Sixers managing partner David Blitzer said. The 21-year-old Philadelphia 76ers star adds his name to a list of the greats including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson and Kevin Durant.

Mitchell kept up the trope Monday, arriving to the awards ceremony in Los Angeles in a van emblazoned with "Rookie?"

"I'd like to thank my family and friends to start with".

Simmons beat out Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell and Celtics wing Jayson Tatum to capture the honor, which went to Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon last season.

Mitchell and Tatum made their debuts the year they were drafted. "I try not to let the media hype things up or fans". FiveThirtyEight projects Simmons to become an MVP candidate based on their wins above replacement projection.

The NBL has not announced its schedule for next season yet, but reports in Australia suggest tipoff will be put back to the second week in October to allow the National Basketball Association games to be played first. "That doesn't take anything away from Jayson or Donovan from having an excellent season".

The deadline was back in April.

Simmons struggled with his jump shot and only attempted 11 3-point field goals during the season, missing them all, but still managed to shoot 54.5 percent from the field as a constant threat to attack the basket. At the end of the day, Simmons was on the same level as Mitchell from the perspective of playing in games for the first time, so there's no reason to continue debating whether it was fair to have the Philadelphia youngster labeled as rookie.
