4.) Dennis Smith Jr. Will Be All Rookie First Team
First off, here were the five players who made up the All Rookie First Team last year.
Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, Willy Hernangomez, Buddy Hield and Malcolm Brogdon.
Last year wasn’t the best of rookie classes by no means, but opportunity and role mean a lot to who wins the award. In Smith Jr.’s class, it shouldn’t be much different.
Smith Jr. will get the reigns as the starting point guard in Dallas on a team that isn’t expected to compete for a championship. In my opinion, here is my guess at who rounds out the rest of the All Rookie First Team.
Lonzo Ball, Jayson Tatum, Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons.
