Top 5 picks make up NBA All-Rookie first team

The first five picks of the 2018 draft proved predictive regarding the 2019 All-Rookie first team, announced by the NBA on Tuesday.

Top overall pick Deandre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns was joined by the Sacramento Kings' Marvin Bagley III (No. 2), Dallas Mavericks' Luka Doncic (No. 3), Memphis Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson Jr. (No. 4) and Atlanta Hawks' Trae Young (No. 5) on the first team.

Doncic and Young were unanimous selections from the 100 media voters. Those two, along with Ayton, are finalists for Rookie of the Year.

The last time the top five picks were all first-team rookie honorees was in 1984-85 -- a class consisting of Hakeem Olajuwon, Sam Bowie, Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins and Charles Barkley.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Collin Sexton, Landry Shamet, Mitchell Robinson and Kevin Huerter were named to the second team.
