NBA GM Survery: Will Emmanuel Mudiay win Rookie of the Year?

Every year, NBA.com does a survey where they ask all 30 NBA General Managers questions about the upcoming season. One of the more popular categories is the Rookie of the Year prediction, which is always a tough one to get right.

Denver Nuggets rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is an interesting position to win the award. Although it's unlikely the Nuggets will be in the playoff hunt, Mudiay could put up big numbers, as he'll be the starting point guard to begin the season.

In the recent past, guards have had more success than big men when it comes to winning the award.

But what did the GMs around the league think? Here's more from NBA.com:

Who will win the 2015-16 Rookie of the Year? 
1. Jahlil Okafor, Philadelphia — 44.8% 
2. Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota — 34.5% 
3. Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver — 13.8%
