Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans was a unanimous selection to the T-Mobile NBA All-Rookie First Team.

This news comes less than a day after he was presented his 2009-10 NBA Rookie of the Year award.

All 30 head coaches had five first team votes (worth two points each) and five second team votes (worth one point) to use. Coaches were not allowed to vote for a rookie on their team.

Evans, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings were unanimous choices for the first team, all three receiving 58 points. Kings rookie swingman Omri Casspi, the first Israeli-born player in the NBA, missed the second team, finishing with 13 points and three first place votes.

New Orleans’ Darren Collison (46 points) and Chicago Bulls’ Taj Gibson (41 points) were also chosen for the first team.

The NBA All-Rookie Second Team consists of New Orleans’ Marcus Thornton (31 points) and San Antonio’s DeJuan Blair (30 points). Oklahoma City’s James Harden, Minnesota’s Jonny Flynn and Detroit’s Jonas Jerebko were all tied, receiving 22 points to finish the second team.

Evans averaged 20.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game.

Casspi averaged 10.3 points 4.5 rebounds,1.2 assists and 0.7 steals per game.
