NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said Ja Morant should be named the Rookie of the Year at the end of the season.

“Ja Morant should be the Rookie of the Year, by far,” Barkley said during this week’s episode of ‘Chuck’s GuarONtees’ on The Warmup.

Morant is averaging 17.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and seven assists this season, helping the Memphis Grizzlies (32-32) maintain a playoff push.
