Toronto Raptors Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes was named to the NBA's 2021-22 All-Rookie First Team on Wednesday, along with fellow freshmen Evan Mobley, Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green and Franz Wagner.

Barnes averaged 15.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists this season, shooting 49.2 per cent from the field and pitching in 1.1 steals a game.
