    NEW YORK — Minnesota Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns and New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis have been unanimously selected to the NBA All-Rookie first team.

    Both players received all 130 first-team votes from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters in the United States and Canada.

    Towns was the Rookie of the Year and led all rookies in scoring (18.3 points per game) and rebounding (10.5 per game). Porzingis was third among rookies in scoring (14.3), second in rebounding (7.3) and first in blocks (1.86). He was the first Knicks rookie to score at least 1,000 points in a season since Mark Jackson in 1987-88.

    Joining Towns and Porzingis on the first team were the Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker, the Denver Nuggets' Nikola Jokic and the Philadelphia 76ers' Jahlil Okafor.

    Miami's Justise Winslow, the Lakers' D'Angelo Russell, Denver's Emmanuel Mudiay, Indiana's Myles Turner and Sacramento's Willie Cauley-Stein were on the All-Rookie second team.
