Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon and Philadelphia 76ers forward Dario Saric were unanimously selected to the 2016-17 NBA All-Rookie first team, the league announced.

They were joined by Saric's Sixers teammate, Joel Embiid, along with Buddy Hield - who split his rookie year between the New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings - and New York Knicks forward Willy Hernangomez.

Player 1st Team 2nd Team Total
Malcolm Brogdon 100 - 200
Dario Saric 100 - 200
Joel Embiid 82 7 171
Buddy Hield 63 28 154
Willy Hernangomez 44 40 128

Embiid was a clear-cut favorite for Rookie of the Year until being sidelined again in January. He was limited to just 31 games. Either Brogdon or Saric will likely win the award, presented Monday night.

It's the first time four international players made up the first team.

The second team was highlighted by Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray.
