Stars Named to Midseason All-NBA G League Team
SALT LAKE CITY - Utah Jazz two-way players Jarrell Brantley and Justin Wright-Foreman have been named to the Midseason All-NBA G League Team for the Western Conference, the league announced today. NBA G League coaches and general managers voted on the top performers from the first half of the season from their respective conferences, based on the performance of players in games through January 28, 2020.
The No. 50 overall selection in the 2019 NBA Draft, Brantley (6-6, 250, Charleston) has appeared in 26 games (all starts) with the Stars this season, averaging a team-best 19.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.4 steals, while shooting 50.8 percent from the field. Brantley has tallied 14 20-point games and four double-doubles with the Stars. The forward has appeared in three games with the Jazz this season.
Wright-Foreman (6-2, 190, Hofstra), the No. 53 overall selection in the 2019 NBA Draft, has appeared in 26 games (24 starts) with the Stars this season, averaging 17.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists. The guard has reached the 20-point threshold 12 times this season, including two 30-point games.
The pair has helped lead the Stars to a 22-10 (.688) mark this season, the second-best record in the Western Conference. During the first half of the 2019-20 campaign, the Stars won 14 consecutive games, the longest winning streak in the NBA G League this season, and captured the NBA G League Winter Showcase Tournament in Las Vegas.
Brantley and Wright-Foreman join current Stars center Willie Reed (2018-19) and Jazz forward Georges Niang (2017-18) as the only Stars players to earn the midseason honor, which the league began awarding in 2017-18.
Eligibility for players to be selected for recognition is based on having played in 50 percent of their team's games through January 28 and being on an active roster. Two-Way players and players on assignment from the NBA are eligible to receive Midseason All-NBA G League recognition.
The Stars are back in action tonight against the Texas Legends (Dallas Mavericks affiliate) at 7 p.m. (MT) at Bruin Arena on the campus of Salt Lake Community College in Taylorsville. The game features the team's season-long "Mountain Mondays" promotion, which includes one Stars game ticket and one souvenir purple mountain cup for $15 or four tickets and two souvenir cups for $30. The limited-edition cups are reusable and may be filled with $1 soda options at all Stars games at Bruin Arena this season.
