Sioux Falls, S.D. (Feb. 4, 2013) – Sioux Falls Skyforce forward Demetris Nichols has been selected to participate in the 2013 NBA Development League All-Star Game, the league announced today. The seventh annual NBA D-League All-Star Game will be played on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Sprint Arena at NBA All-Star Jam Session at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center. The game will air live on NBA TV at 2 p.m. CT.

 

“Demetris exemplifies what our league should be about,” said head coach Joel Abelson. “He works hard every day to improve his game and is all about doing what he can to help us win games.”

 

Nichols is currently averaging 17.8 point and 5.0 rebounds through 27 games (all starts). He was named Performer of the Week for games played Jan. 14-20 after averaging 25.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists while shooting 63.0 percent from the field (29-of-46). The 6-8, 215-pound forward has appeared in 18 NBA games with the Chicago Bulls (13), Cleveland Cavaliers (3) and New York Knicks (2).

 

The field of 20 players was selected by a vote of the NBA D-League’s 16 head coaches and was broken into two teams by League officials. Players were eligible to be selected based on having played in half of their team’s games through Jan. 27. Each player must be on an active NBA D-League roster at the time of the NBA D-League All-Star Game in order to compete.
