Memphis Grizzlies Guard Ja Morant Is Unanimous NBA Rookie Of The Year According To Unofficial Survey Done By ESPN; Brandon Clarke Finishes Fourth

Anthony Sain

The fate of the NBA season, as well as the end of the year awards, are still to be determined, but ESPN conducted an unofficial survey that polled 70 beat writers, national and international reporters, determining that Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant is the unanimous NBA Rookie Of The Year.

Morant received every first-place vote from the selection of eligible voters with New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson finishing in second-place with 51 of the 70 second-place votes and Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn coming in third-place with 14 second-place votes.  Morant's teammate Brandon Clarke finished fourth overall.  

The actual NBA Rookie of the Year vote is of course still to be determined, but this could be a great indicator that Morant will maintain the award in spite of the television media's persistent push for Williamson to pass Morant.
