Norcross' Lamb named to NBA D-League All-Star Game

Norcross product Jeremy Lamb was selected for the NBA Developmental League All-Star Game in a Monday announcement by the basketball league.

The 6-foot-5 guard was one of of the NBA's top prospects selected for the showcase, which is Feb. 16 at Sprint Arena for the NBA All-Star Jam Session in Houston. The game will air live on NBA TV at 3 p.m.

Lamb, who will play for the Futures Team, has played parts of this season with both the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Tulsa 66ers of the D-League. He was a first-round pick of the Houston Rockets before being traded to the Thunder as part of the James Harden deal.

He has played in 16 NBA games this season, averaging just 1.7 points and 4 minutes. His last NBA action was Jan. 16, when he played 10 minutes against Denver.

While his action with the deep Thunder has been limited, Lamb has been a standout in the D-League. In 14 games with Tulsa, he averages 21.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

The former Connecticut star scored 30 points in back-to-back wins on Jan. 22 and Jan. 25. In the Jan. 22 win over Iowa, he also had nine rebounds and eight assists.

Lamb has been sidelined recently with a back injury.
