MIAMI – The Miami Heat's Justise Winslow has been named to the NBA All-Rookie second team.

Winslow, the 10th overall pick in last year's NBA Draft, finished one spot outside of the first team and is the 11th Heat player to be named to one of the league's All-Rookie teams.

In his first NBA season, Winslow averaged 6.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

Josh Richardson, the Heat's second round selection in the 2015 draft, finished 11th in the voting.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns and New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis were unanimously selected to the All-Rookie first team.

Both players received all 130 first-team votes from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters in the United States and Canada.

Towns was the Rookie of the Year and led all rookies in scoring (18.3 points per game) and rebounding (10.5 per game). Porzingis was third among rookies in scoring (14.3), second in rebounding (7.3) and first in blocks (1.86). He was the first Knicks rookie to score at least 1,000 points in a season since Mark Jackson in 1987-88.

Joining Towns and Porzingis on the first team were the Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker, the Denver Nuggets' Nikola Jokic and the Philadelphia 76ers' Jahlil Okafor.

The Lakers' D'Angelo Russell, Denver's Emmanuel Mudiay, Indiana's Myles Turner and Sacramento's Willie Cauley-Stein joined Winslow on the second team.
