Utah Jazz two-way player Jarrell Brantley has been named to the All-NBA G League First Team and All-Rookie Team for the 2019-20 season, the league announced today.

Brantley (6-6, 250, Charleston) led the Stars in scoring in 2019-20, averaging 18.8 points while shooting 51.2 percent from the floor in 33 games (all starts). The Jazz two-way player helped lead the Stars to their most successful season in team history, as the club posted a 24-9 (.727) mark in games Brantley played. He finished second in voting for the 2019-20 NBA G League Rookie of the Year Award.

The No. 50 overall selection in the 2019 NBA Draft, Brantley was named to the Midseason All-NBA G League Team for the Western Conference in February. He has appeared in five games with the Jazz this season.

Brantley joins Martin Schiller, who was named the 2019-20 NBA G League Dennis Johnson Coach of the Year, and Bart Taylor, who was named the 2019-20 NBA G League Basketball Executive of the Year, as Stars recipients of end-of-season honors.
