Olynyk, drafted 13th by Boston, earned 27.6 percent of the vote, edging both Sacramento's Ben McLemore (7th) and Philadelphia's Nerlens Noel (6th) who each got 13.8 percent. Olynyk also ranked fifth on a question asking which rookie will be the best player in five years.
Other Boston appearances included Rajon Rondo at second for best passer (behind Chris Paul); Avery Bradley tied for fourth in voting for the league's best perimeter defender; and Rondo tied Kobe Bryant for fifth for which player has the best basketball IQ.
Boston also received votes for best overall moves this offseason (but didn't rank in top 3).
