Cavs news: Isaac Okoro named to All-Rookie Second Team

1 Min Read

Cleveland Cavaliers rookie forward Isaac Okoro reportedly was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie Second Team on Thursday.

Okoro was joined by Immanuel Quickley, Desmond Bane, Patrick Williams and Isaiah Stewart.

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Okoro showcased some promise in his rookie season.

He finished the year averaging 9.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 42.0 percent from the field and 29.0 percent from 3-point range.

However, Okoro finished the season really strong, as he averaged 16.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game in his nine games in the month of May.

The Cavs didn’t have a great season, as they finished with a 22-50 record, but Okoro looks like a piece to build around for the future.

Along with Collin Sexton, Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen, Okoro appears to be a part of Cleveland’s future as it tries to get back to the postseason.
