Ja Morant has been awarded the NBA Rookie of the Year award for 2019-20.
Morant was taken with the second overall selection by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2019 NBA Draft and put together an impressive rookie season. He ended the season as a sixth-round talent in 8-category leagues with averages of 18.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 0.9 steals on 48 percent shooting from the field. Morant has the Grizzlies primed to be a competitive force for many seasons and was certainly a worthy winner of the award. He beat out Kendrick Nunn and Zion Williamson, who finished second and third respectively.
