BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) -The Sonics' Kevin Durant has been honored as the NBA Rookie of the Year, becoming the first Seattle player to win the award - and perhaps the last.
Durant, the national college player of the year at Texas and the No. 2 pick in last year's draft, averaged 20.3 points per game.
Durant has been a bright spot during a dismal basketball season in Seattle. The Sonics won only 20 games, and the owner is moving the team to Oklahoma City.
