Wes Johnson Named To NBA All-Rookie Second Team

Wesley Johnson has been named to the NBA's All-Rookie Second Team after the Minnesota Timberwolves swingman averaged 9.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 79 games during the regular season. Both Jonny Flynn (2009-10) and Kevin Love (2008-09) were named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team in the past.

Johnson, selected by the Wolves out of Syracuse with the fourth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, received 26 total votes from the NBA head coaches. Players received two points for a first team vote and one point for a second team vote with positions not being taken into account when putting together the All-Rookie teams.

↵

Johnson's total voting breakdown was four first team votes along with 18 second team votes, meaning seven coaches left him off their ballot altogether.

Blake Griffin, John Wall, Landry Fields, Gary Neal and DeMarcus Cousins made up the first team while Greg Monroe, Eric Bledsoe, Derrick Favors and Paul George joined Johnson on the second team.
