The German forward is the only European player to be selected in the All-rookie teams this season.
He is the first German player ever to be selected in the All-Rookie First Team. Franz Wagner received 99 votes (84 to make the first team, 15 for the second team) and needed one more vote to be unanimously selected in the first-team. He became the first Orlando Magic player to be selected in the All-Rookie first-team since Elfrid Payton in 2015.
The German forward produced an outstanding first season in the NBA. Selected with the 8th pick by the Orlando Magic, he averaged 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists while shooting 46.8% from the field. He was also named Rookie of the Month in December.
