Covingon placed fourth in the voting for NBA Defensive Player of the Year, though he wasn't even close to the top three.
Green, who won the award Monday night, received 73 of 100 first-place votes and had 434 voting points.
Gobert was next with 16 first-place votes and 269 points, followed by Leonard with 11 first-place votes and 182 points.
Covington was the only other player in the NBA to receive both a second- and third-place vote, giving him a total of four voting points. That was one more than LeBron James, Hassan Whiteside and Andre Roberson.
Both writers who voted for Covington are international: Antoni Daimel of Moviestar+ in Spain and Flavio Tranquillo of Sky Italia. European hoops heads must love them some RoCo.
After a slow start, Covington had a breakout 2016-17 season, offensive and defensively. His reputation has grown substantially over the last year and he's now considered one of the better three-and-D players in the NBA and a solid fit alongside the Sixers' young nucleus.
