The former Michigan star is the first Jazz rookie to earn first-team honors since point guard Deron Williams did it in 2006. Darrell Griffith (1980-81), Thurl Bailey (1983-84), Karl Malone (1985-86) and Andre Kirilenko (2001-02) were also first-team selections.

Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams, Orlando’s Victor Oladipo, Brooklyn’s Mason Plumlee and New York’s Tim Hardaway Jr. were also voted onto this year’s All-Rookie First Team. Boston’s Kelly Olynyk, Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Minnesota’s Gorgui Dieng, Charlotte’s Cody Zeller and Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams were voted onto the second team.

Burke received the third-highest point total among the league’s rookies, with 108 first-place votes and 14 second-place votes.

Burke was three times named the Western Conference’s Rookie of the Month, the first Jazz rookie to ever win the award multiple times. The team’s young floor leader had 12 games of 20 points or more and seven games with at least 10 assists.
