Despite the NBA announcing plans to make a comeback in late July, the G League has decided to cancel the rest of its season.
“While canceling the remainder of our season weighs heavily on us, we recognize that it is the most appropriate action to take for our league,” G League president Shareef Abdur-Rahim said in a statement. “I extend my sincere gratitude to NBA G League players and coaches for giving their all to their teams and fans this season. And to our fans, I thank you and look forward to resuming play for the 2020-21 season.”
The G League paid out all of its players through the season (17 canceled days) and extended their health benefits, Shams Charania also noted.
The Wisconsin Herd, the Milwaukee Bucks affiliate, finished first in the Eastern Conference at 33-10, while the Utah Jazz-affiliated Salt Lake City Stars finished first in the Western Conference at 30-12.
Frank Mason of the Herd was the G League’s leading scorer, averaging 26.4 points per game, Ivan Rabb of the Westchester Knicks was the leading rebounder, averaging 12.1 rebounds per game and Josh Magette of the Lakeland Magic was the assist leader, averaging 10.6 assists per game.
