Zion Williamson is projected to be named Rookie of the Year by his fellow rookies.

John Schuhmann of NBA.com announced the results from the annual rookie survey on Monday.

This season’s rookie class took part in the survey answering questions such as who they believe will win Rookie of the Year. They were told not to vote for themselves, an NBA teammate, or a college teammate (if they did, the vote was not counted).

Here was the winner of seven different categories from the survey.

1

Who will be the 2019-20 Kia Rookie of the Year? Zion Williamson 35%

Arguably the most-hyped rookie since LeBron James in 2003, Williamson (selected first overall by the Pelicans) won the 2018-19 Naismith Award as Player of the year in his one year at Duke where he averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 steals, and 1.8 blocks.

2

Which rookie will have the best career? Cam Reddish 19%

Fellow rookies were not concerned that in Reddish’s one year at Duke, he shot a ghastly 35.6 percent from the- field. Neither were the Hawks who nabbed him with the 10th overall pick.
