The NBA announced Thursday its All-Rookie Teams for the 2013/14 season, and to no one's surprise, Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo earned a selection to the First Team. The Indiana product earned 124 of a possible 125 First-Team votes, narrowly missing joining Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams as a unanimous All-Rookie selection.

Oladipo averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.6 steals per game and finished second to Carter-Williams in a narrow Rookie of the Year race. Oladipo becomes the first Magic player named to the All-Rookie First Team since Dwight Howard following the 2004/05 season.

Orlando's other All-Rookie First Teamers are Dennis Scott (1991), Shaquille O'Neal (1992), Penny Hardaway (1993), Matt Harpring (1999), Mike Miller (2001), and Drew Gooden (2003).

Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke, Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee, and New York Knicks swingman Tim Hardaway Jr. round out the First Team. Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk, Milwaukee Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo, Minnesota Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng, Charlotte Bobcats big man Cody Zeller, and Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams comprise the Second Team.
