NBA News: Scottie Barnes zum Rookie of the Year gewählt
Scottie Barnes of the Toronto Raptors is the Rookie of the Year of the season 2021/22! In the shortest decision since 19 years, the wing player had prevailed from Evan Mobley from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Next to Cade Cunningham in third place also Jalen Green, Franz Wagner and Herbert Jones points.
“It was a destination of me to win the award, but I did not want to think too much and do too much out of it. I just played my role and done what I had to do. With the team to win also helps” said the winner, who united most First-Place votes (48). 43 voters saw Mobley in front, nine Cunningham. Barnes is to Damon Stoudamire 1996 and Vince Carter 1999 the third Raptor, who could secure the award.
Only 15 votes separated the winner (378) and the secondary placed (363). It was never more closely since the format has changed almost two decades to today’s. In particular, due to its services in the final phase of the season, Barnes should have secured the victory. As he played in addition to 15.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists strong defense and came to the most minutes of all rookies (he started in all games), Mobley had to suspend five games due to injury.
After Barnes then missed two games in the playoffs against Philadelphia due to an ankle violation, he returned to victory in Game 4 (6 points, 1/6 FG, 11 rebounds). For the Cavaliers (MOBLEY), however, the season was finished after defeats in the play-in tournament. Detroit (Cunningham) took the penultimate place in the Eastern Conference.
The German Rookie Franz Wagner from the Orlando Magic took place in the ranking place five, two Third-Place votes received the Berliner who the Magic picked up the eighth position. In 79 games, the 20-year-old set 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists at odds of 46.8 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from the distance.
