Joel Bolomboy and Xavier Munford were named to the Midseason All-NBA G League Eastern Conference Team. James Young, who appeared in 20 games with the Herd before signing a Two-Way contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, also was selected.
Bolomboy has appeared in 17 games (16 starts) with the Herd. The Weber State product is averaging a double-double, 17.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. Bolomboy is fifth among all NBA G League players for rebounds on the season.
Munford is the Herd’s leading scorer, averaging 23.2 points per game — third among all NBA G League players. The Bucks Two-Way player has appeared in 25 games (24 starts) with Wisconsin and is averaging 5.1 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game.
With NBA G League International Challenge replacing the traditional NBA G League All-Star Game this year, the NBA’s official minor league recognized its top performers by naming the Midseason All-NBA G League Teams. NBA G League coaches, general managers and players voted on the top performers from the first half of the season from their respective conferences.
Eligibility for players to be selected for recognition was based on having played in 50 percent of their team’s games through January 21st and being on an Active Roster. Two-Way players and players on assignment from the NBA were eligible to both vote for and receive Midseason All-NBA G League recognition.
