Warriors first-year small forward Harrison Barnes was among those named to the NBA All-Rookie first team Tuesday. The 20-year-old out of North Carolina finished with a .439 field-goal percentage and averaged 9.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game through his first regular season.
Barnes is joined on the first team by the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Dion Waiters; the Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard; the league’s Rookie of the Year, the Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal; and the New Orleans Hornets’ Anthony Davis.
The voting panel consisted of the NBA’s 30 head coaches, who selected five players for the first team and five players for the second team, regardless of position. They weren’t allowed to vote for players on their own team.
The second team consisted of the Detroit Pistons’ Andre Drummond, the Toronto Raptors’ Jonas Valanciunas, the Charlotte Bobcats’ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the Pistons’ Kyle Singler and the Cavaliers’ Tyler Zeller.
