Jeremy Lamb Selected to D-League All-Star Team

It's not the All-Star Game Jeremy Lamb would like to be playing in, but the former UConn standout has been selected to play in the seventh annual NBA D-League All-Star Game on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Sprint Arena during the NBA All-Star Jam Session at Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center. The game will air live on NBA TV at 3 p.m.

Lamb has played for Tulsa on assignment from the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was selected for the Futures Team, which will play the Prospects Team. Players were selected by vote of the D-League's 16 head coaches and were eligible to be selected based on having played in half their teams' games through Jan. 27. Each player must be on an active D-League roster at the time of the game in order to compete, meaning there's a chance Lamb might not play in the game.

Here are the rosters:

I think he's fine with the decision nearly every other college star makes, choosing the money over the risk for injury, etc. Heck, he was considering going pro after his freshman season. Might have been a (late) first-round pick, too.
