GMs pick Lonzo Ball to win Rookie of the Year

GMs pick Lonzo Ball to win Rookie of the Year”

Also, the Sixers were voted second, behind the Minnesota Timberwolves, for most improved team. GMs voted Oklahoma City as the team that made the best overall moves in the offseason; Thunder GM Sam Presti acquired George by sending out Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis and acquired Anthony by sending Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a 2018 second-round pick to NY.

These GMs were not allowed to vote for their own team or personnel. Percentages are based on the pool of respondents to that particular question, rather than all 30 GMs.

The top five MVP votes were Kevin Durant (29 percent), Kawhi Leonard (11 percent), James Harden (7 percent) and Steph Curry (4 percent). Joel Embiid and Simmons received votes for most likely to have a breakout season.

Also receiving votes were Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox and third overall pick Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics.

Last year's league MVP, Russell Westbrook, wasn't listed.

The Golden State Warriors are favorites to win the title for the second straight season, securing a record-setting 93 percent of the vote. Cleveland came in second at seven percent. Ball won the vote by a huge margin as Ben Simmons was picked second with only 24 percent of the vote. Giannis Antetokounmpo came in second with 21 percent. They each received 21 percent of the votes. After averaging 25.1 points and 12.3 rebounds per game a year ago, it's tough to really imagine how one would "break out" further... maybe 35 points and 20 rebounds per game would do it? New York's Kristaps Porzingis and Indiana's Myles Turner tied for second in the voting (14 percent).

62 percent of NBA GM's (or their interns who are forced to respond to the survey) predicted that Lakers' point guard Lonzo Ball will win Rookie of the Year.

Karl-Anthony Towns is the player who GMs would pick to sign and start a National Basketball Association franchise with.

In the offseason, Oklahoma City was voted to have made the best moves, with Paul George slated to have the biggest impact.
