Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam earned some hardware on Wednesday, being named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Siakam received 102 votes for a total of 168 points, which gave him enough to merit the last forward slot on the second team. The votes were cast before the restart of the NBA season on March 11.

In 60 games this season, Siakam averaged 22.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the second-place Raptors.

Siakam becomes the sixth player in team history to earn All-NBA honours, joining Vince Carter, Chris Bosh, DeMar DeRozan, Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry.

Through a clause in his contract extension signed last summer, Siakam will now receive a raise in his annual salary, from $27 million to $30 million for next year as enters year one of a four-year, $130-million deal.
