San Antonio Spurs star Victor Wembanyama has been named NBA Rookie of the Year.

The 20-year-old is the first Frenchman to win the award after averaging 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, a league-high 3.6 blocked shots and 1.2 steals a game.

Wembanyama, the first pick in last year’s draft, was the unanimous choice, as he earned all 99 first-place votes.

He is the first unanimous Rookie of the Year since Karl-Anthony Towns in 2016.
