The popular answers in Cell 6 are Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. They were All-Rookie team members in their first seasons in the NBA, respectively. Vladimir Radmanovic, Jeff Green and Jack Sikma also accomplished the same feat for the Thunder.
Out of the aforementioned names, only Durant won Rookie of the Year, which guaranteed him a spot in the All-Rookie team.
Otto Porter Jr., Ralph Sampson, Nick Young and Al Harrington played for the Washington Wizards and Golden State Warriors. They fit well in Cell 7 of the NBA HoopGrids puzzle.
Sampson played in Washington when the franchise was still called the Bullets. He played there for 10 games in the last season of his injury-riddled career.
