A panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the NBA has chosen Ja Morant as the league’s Most Improved Player. The Memphis Grizzlies guard was rookie of the year in 2020 and now adds his second major award in three seasons. Morant scored a career-best 27.4 points per game and also set career highs in rebounds, steals and field-goal percentage. San Antonio’s Dejounte Murray was second in voting.
