Against the NBA Finals competitor Cleveland Cavaliers, Brown shot 58.6 percent and averaged 9.0 points, including a playoff career-high 19 points in game 2, during the Eastern Conference Finals. The second-round pick - No. 36 overall - from Virginia averaged 10.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists and helped the Bucks reach the playoffs.
Despite Embiid's social media campaign to get either Saric or himself the top rookie award, Brogdon finished 166 media voting points ahead of the second placed finisher.
A guard, Brogdon put together a solid season for Milwaukee, averaging 10.2 points and 4.2 assists per game while hitting more than 40 percent of his three-point attempts. Embiid - who just finished his third season in the National Basketball Association despite playing for the first time - is technically considered a rookie, which means Simmons - a rookie this past season - will be eligible for the Rookie of the Year award next year along with Markelle Fultz.

The second team guards were Tony Allen of Memphis and Danny Green of the Spurs. Playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo, he's going to be an integral piece moving forward in Milwaukee's backcourt.
Earlier Monday, Brogdon and Saric were unanimously selected to the NBA All-Rookie first team.
