NEW YORK, May 13 (UPI) -- Atlanta Hawks forward-center Al Horford was a unanimous selection to the NBA's all-rookie team, the league said Tuesday.

Horford finished second to Seattle swingman Kevin Durant in the overall rookie-of-the year voting, but piled up 58 points in balloting for the all-rookie first team. Durant was right behind with 57 points.

The 30 NBA coaches voted for the all-rookie team with a first-team vote worth 2 points and a second-team mention worth 1. Coaches couldn't vote for their own players.

Joining Horford and Durant on the first team were Houston's Luis Scola, the Los Angeles Clippers' Al Thornton and Seattle's Jeff Green.

The all-rookie second team is made up of Toronto's Jamario Moon, Memphis's Juan Carlos Navarro, Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young, Detroit's Rodney Stuckey and Houston's Carl Landry.
