NBA: Wagner goes out empty
Basketball Professional Franz Wagner from the Orlando Magic has played only a secondary role in the election of the best “rookie of the year” in the NBA. The award secured Scottie Barnes from the Toronto Raptors.
Wagner landed in the choice with a total of two votes in place five. The 20-year-old Barnes was conceivable at the top of the voting with a total of 378 points scarce against Evan Mobley from the Cleveland Cavaliers (363).
The 15 points difference are the shortest lead since the introduction of the voting system in the 2002/03 season.
Barnes was selected from the Toronto Raptors in last year’s draft at position four. The flexibly usable forward achieved an average of 15.3 points per game in its premiere season, and he reached 7.5 rebounds. Currently, Super Rookie plays with its Raptors in the NBA playoffs.
This has clearly missed this 20-year-old Wagner with Orlando. The Team from Florida finished the season with the second-winded balance of all teams. Wagner came in his first season in 79 games on an average of 15.2 points and 4.5 rebounds.
