Statement from the Salt Lake City Stars
SALT LAKE CITY - The following is a statement from Salt Lake City Stars President Jonathan Rinehart on the cancellation of the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA G League season:
"While disappointing, we fully support the NBA G League's announcement canceling the remainder of the 2019-20 season. We know this was an extremely hard decision driven by many factors, but a necessary one, as the health and safety of our community is paramount.
"I am grateful to our players, coaches and staff for their remarkable efforts and contributions over the course of the season, and especially to our fans and partners for their tremendous support. We would have enjoyed competing for a championship following the most successful season in Stars history, but now we turn our focus to returning to the court for the 2020-21 campaign.
"At the same time, we recognize that there are much larger issues of pain and trauma facing our country. We are committed to lending our voice to address systemic racial injustice and continuing to help those in need."
