Ja Morant has been named the 2019-20 Rookie of the Year.
Of course. Morant didn't face much competition for this trophy, with Zion Williamson only appearing in 24 games and the rest of his draft class playing like trash by comparison in their introductory seasons. Morant produced averages of 18.1 points, 7.3 dimes, 3.9 boards, 0.9 triples, 0.9 steals and 3.4 turnovers per game on 47.7% shooting from the field and 77.5% from the line in his first NBA campaign, and if he can get the 3-point shooting and steals numbers up next season, he could be an elite asset.
