LAS VEGAS, July 17, 2016 – Tyus Jones of the Minnesota Timberwolves was named Most Valuable Player of the Samsung NBA Summer League 2016, while nine additional players highlight the Samsung All-NBA Summer League First and Second teams, as selected by a panel of media members.

The 11-day, 67-game event featured 23 NBA teams and the NBA D-League Select team and will culminate tomorrow night with the Championship game between the second-seeded Chicago Bulls and the 24th seeded Minnesota Timberwolves. The Championship game will air live on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET.

Jones led Minnesota to four consecutive wins during the tournament to advance to the Samsung NBA Summer League’s Championship game after losing the opening three games in Las Vegas. In seven games in Las Vegas, Jones averaged 19.4 points on 45.7 percent shooting to go with 6.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals. On July 17, he scored 29 points on 9-for-17 shooting to go with six assists and three rebounds.

Joining Jones on the Samsung All-NBA Summer League 2016 First Team are Jordan McRae (Cleveland), Bobby Portis (Chicago), Ben Simmons (Philadelphia) and Alan Williams (Phoenix).

Jaylen Brown (Boston), Thon Maker (Milwaukee), Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington), Normal Powell (Toronto) and Tyler Ulis (Phoenix) round out the Second Team.

Samsung NBA Summer League 2016 featured a tournament-style schedule for the fourth-consecutive summer, with the Golden State Warriors having won the inaugural championship in 2013, the Sacramento Kings being crowned champions in 2014, and the San Antonio Spurs taking home the title in 2015. Each of the participating teams played three games apiece between July 8 and 12 before being seeded in the tournament, which tipped off on July 13.

The Samsung All-NBA Summer League teams 2016 are below.

Samsung All-NBA Summer League First Team: Tyus Jones (Minnesota), Jordan McRae (Cleveland), Bobby Portis (Chicago), Ben Simmons (Philadelphia), Alan Williams (Phoenix)

Samsung All-NBA Summer League Second Team: Jaylen Brown (Boston), Thon Maker (Milwaukee), Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington), Norman Powell (Toronto), Tyler Ulis (Phoenix)
