Two Replacements Announced for NBA D-League All-Star Game

HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2013 – Two prospects were today announced as replacements in the 2013 NBA Development League All-Star Game, which will air live on NBA TV at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Sprint Arena at NBA All-Star Jam Session at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center. On the Futures team, Tony Mitchell (Fort Wayne Mad Ants) will replace Jeremy Lamb (Tulsa 66ers), while Chris Wright (Iowa Energy) will replace Terrence Jones (Rio Grande Valley Vipers) on the Prospects roster.

Lamb, who was playing with the 66ers on assignment from the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Jones, who was playing with the Vipers on assignment from the Houston Rockets, have both been recalled by their NBA teams and are ineligible to play in the 2013 NBA D-League All-Star Game by virtue of not being on an active NBA D-League roster.

The seventh annual NBA D-League All-Star Game will be preceded by the 2013 Boost Mobile NBA D-League Three Point Contest, and will host the Boost Mobile NBA D-League Slam Dunk Contest during halftime of the game.
