Booker is the 9th Sun in franchise history to receive the honor.

Thursday Devin Booker became the first Sun since Amar'e Stoudemire to be named to the NBA's All-Rookie First Team.

Booker finished with the third most votes or "points" by a wide margin over Nikola Jokic who finished in fourth. Three days ago Jokic finished ahead of Booker in Rookie of the Year voting. What this means is that I clearly don't understand how any of this works.

The future of the franchise was joined on the First Team by Jokic from the Nuggets, Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks, and Jahlil Okafor of the Philadelphia 76ers.
