Bobcats’ Kidd-Gilchrist voted to NBA’s second-team all-rookie team

The Charlotte ObserverMay 14, 2013 

Charlotte Bobcats small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was chosen second-team all-rookie in a vote of the NBA’s 30 head coaches.

Kidd-Gilchrist, the second overall pick in last June’s draft, finished eighth in the balloting, which was not position-specific. Rookie of the year Damian Lillard (Portland) made first team, as did former North Carolina star Harrison Barnes, now with the Golden State Warriors. Washington’s Bradley Beal, New Orleans’ Anthony Davis and Cleveland’s Dion Waiters filled out the first team.

Kidd-Gilchrist made the second team along with Detroit’s Andre Drummond, Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, Detroit’s Kyle Singler and Cleveland’s Tyler Zeller. Singler played at Duke, Zeller at North Carolina.

Bobcats second-round pick Jeff Taylor received one vote in the coaches’ rookie team balloting.
