Raptors guard Terence Davis named to NBA’s all-rookie second team


Toronto Raptors guard Terence Davis has been named to the NBA’s all-rookie second team.

Memphis’s Ja Morant, the league’s rookie of the year, was a unanimous pick to the first team. He is joined by teammate Brandon Clarke, Miami’s Kendrick Nunn, Golden State’s Eric Paschall and New Orleans’ Zion Williamson.

The 23-year-old Davis is joined on the second team by Miami’s Tyler Herro, Chicago’s Coby White, Charlotte’s P.J. Washington and Washington’s Rui Hachimura.

Davis averaged 7.5 points and 3.3 rebounds while being the only player to appear in all of his team’s 72 games this season. The young guard was fifth among rookies in three-point percentage at nearly 39 per cent and eighth in field goal percentage (.456).

He is the team’s 11th player in franchise history, and the first since Jonas Valanciunas, to be named to an all-rookie team.

Davis joined the Raptors in July 2019 as an undrafted free agent after playing four years at the University of Mississippi.
