2018-19 NBA 1st Team All Rookie
Luka Dončić, Dallas Mavericks
Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks
Deandre Ayton, Phoenix Suns
Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies
Marvin Bagley III, Sacramento Kings
2018-19 NBA 2nd Team All Rookie
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, LA Clippers
Collin Sexton, Cleveland Cavaliers
Landry Shamet, LA Clippers
Mitchell Robinson, New York Knicks
Kevin Huerter, Atlanta Hawks
For me, second team seemed just right. The above candidates had stronger seasons than Huerter and statistically were either better or close to Huerter's stats.
