Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray and Houston Rockets forward Tari Eason were among the three rookies named to the All-Summer League teams announced on Monday.

Murray, who was voted the Most Valuable Player of the Las Vegas Summer League, and Eason were each named to the first team. Indiana Pacers guard Bennedict Mathurin was voted onto the second team by a panel of media members.

The Kings’ standout averaged 23.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, two assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 50% from the field and 40% from 3-point range in four games. The fourth pick finished fourth in scoring average among all players and had at least 20 points in every game.

Eason, the 17th pick last month, posted 17.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.6 assists and one blocked shot on 44.7% shooting from the field in five games with the Rockets. He led all players in rebounding and double-doubles (4) in Las Vegas.

Mathurin averaged 19.3 points, four rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals on 38.5% shooting from 3-point range. The sixth pick played in only three games after the team opted to hold him out of the lineup after suffering a toe injury that isn’t thought to be serious.
