NBA: NBA Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA released their annual rookie survey, where the newest batch of NBA players vote for a variety of categories including best shooter, best defender, and player most likely to win Rookie of the Year.

While neither Jarred Vanderbilt or Thomas Welsh received votes in any of the categories, Michael Porter Jr., the No. 14 overall pick, did see his name show up in a few categories.

Porter Jr. received votes in the following categories, with the winner in parenthesis: Rookie of the Year winner (DeAndre Ayton, Collin Sexton), best career (Wendell Carter Jr.), biggest steal (Keita Bates-Diop), most athletic (Zhaire Smith), and best playmaker (Trae Young).

As a reminder, rookies aren’t able to vote for themselves, or for college or NBA teammates. At the least, this shows that the other rookies at least know who Porter Jr. is and know what he’s capable of when healthy.
