5/22/2012

Knicks guard Iman Shumpert was named to the All-Rookie First Team, the NBA announced Tuesday.

Shumpert was joined by Cleveland's Kyrie Irving (Rookie of the Year), Minnesota's Ricky Rubio, Denver's Kenneth Faried, Golden State's Klay Thompson, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and Detroit's Brandon Knight (in order of most votes).

The All-Rookie Second Team featured Houston's Chandler Parsons, Sacramento's Isaiah Thomas, New Jersey's MarShon Brooks, Minnesota's Derrick Williams and Cleveland's Tristan Thompson.

Shumpert is currently rehabbing his left knee. He suffered a torn ACL and lateral meniscus in Game 1 against the Heat. He could return to action in December or January.
