Detroit Pistons rookie Cade Cunningham may have been snubbed in the NBA's Rookie of the Year voting but on Wednesday night, he earned a big-time honor.
On Wednesday, the NBA revealed the NBA All-Rookie First Team and Cunningham got the nod as a unanimous selection.
Cunningham joins Scottie Barnes, Jalen Green, Evan Mobley, and Franz Wager on the team.
During his rookie campaign, Cunningham, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, averaged 17.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game.
The 2021-22 Kia NBA All-Rookie First Team!
