For the second straight season, Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis is an All-NBA talent.

During a telecast of Inside the NBA on TNT, the three five-player teams, as voted on by select NBA media members were revealed with Sabonis joining Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, and Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton.

Sabonis received 104 voting points, the third-most of the All-NBA Third Team members.

2023-24 All-NBA Teams

Over 82 games, Sabonis averaged 19.4 points, 13.7 rebounds (1st in NBA), and 8.2 assists (6th in NBA) per game on 59 percent shooting from the field. The 27-year-old led the league in double-doubles (77) and triple-doubles (26) and clinched his second-straight rebounding title.

Along with leading the league in rebounds, rebounds per game, double-doubles, and triple-doubles, Sabonis’ 673 assists (career-high) placed him fourth in the NBA, only behind Tyrese Haliburton, Luka Doncic, and Jokic.

Sabonis also finished fourth in win shares (12.6), with Jokic, Shai Gilgeous-Alexader, and Giannis Antetokounmpo ahead of him.

Posting 19-13-8 is a rare feat for NBA players. Sabonis’ 2023-24 season made him just the second player in league history to post those numbers or better, joining Wilt Chamberlain (1967-68) as the only other person to do so.

Since being acquired by Sacramento in 2022, Sabonis has been a force for the Kings, averaging 19.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 7.6 assists over 176 games. Sabonis has already jumped into the top ten on the Sacramento era (1985-present) rebounding leaderboard, coming in at tenth with 2,278 rebounds.

Since Sabonis earned another All-NBA honor, he will receive a $1.3 million incentive per the terms of his contract.

Kings guard De’Aaron Fox received nine voting points, including six votes for the All-NBA Third Team.
