Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson has been named to the NBA All-Rookie first team.

The rookie out of USC played in all 82 games this season, averaging 9 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game all while shooting 49.4 percent from the field.

Gibson is joined by Sacramento's Tyreke Evans, Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings, Golden State's Stephen Curry and New Orleans' Darren Collison on the first team.

Derrick Rose was on the team last season, marking the first back-to-back seasons the Bulls have a representative on the All-Rookie first team since Kirk Hinrich made the 2003 team, and Ben Gordon and Luol Deng made the 2004 team.
