Embiid is a finalist for Defensive Player of the Year. He has tough competition with the likes of Utah’s Rudy Gobert and New Orleans’ Anthony Davis.

Meanwhile, Simmons is up for Rookie of the Year. The Australian-born point guard will be battling Boston’s Jayson Tatum and Utah’s Donovan Mitchell for the coveted title.

Simmons and Mitchell both shared the honor of unanimously being named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
