April 25, 2017 - NBA Development League (D-League) - Canton Charge

News Release

The Canton Charge, powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, had three players earn All-League honors. Quinn Cook (First Team All-NBA Development League), Eric Moreland (NBA Development League All-Defensive Team, Third Team All-NBA Development League) and John Holland (Third Team All NBA-Development League) were all recognized for their outstanding play on the court this past season.

The League's scoring champion, Quinn Cook was named First Team All-NBA D-League after a sophomore season that saw him take home 2017 NBA D-League All Star MVP honors as well as earning Gatorade NBA Call-Ups with the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans. Cook appeared in 39 games (38 starts) for the Charge, averaging 26.0 points, 6.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds in 38.6 minutes per game. He set a Charge single game record by scoring 49 points in a win over Texas (12/7/16) and also set a new franchise mark for assists when he dished out 16 against Long Island (2/8/17).

Eric Moreland was named to the NBA D-League All-Defensive team as well as being named Third Team All-NBA D-League. Moreland (6-10, 250, Oregon State) appeared in 44 games (41 starts) for the Charge, averaging 12.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.7 blocks in 33.4 minutes per contest en route to an All Star selection. Moreland's 12.2 rebounds ranked tops in the League and his 2.7 blocks per night tied for the most with Raptors 905 center Edy Tavares. He had the second-most double-doubles of any player this season and set Charge single game records for rebounds (22 vs. GBO, 12/28/16) and blocks (9 vs. AUS, 3/11/17).

Named the League's Impact Player of the Year last week, John Holland was also named Third Team All-NBA Development League. Holland (6-6, 205, Boston University) joined the Charge on Dec. 9 and appeared in 37 games (all starts), averaging 22.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 38.9 minutes. He scored in double figures in every game he played, including four 30-plus point outings, and tallied a career-high 37 points at Long Island on Feb. 8.
