Ask scouts who the best player in the D-League is this season, and quickly you hear about Celtics’ rookie Jordan Mickey. He was one of the most impressive players at Summer League, which is why Boston inked him to a four-year deal (the first two years guaranteed). With a crowded frontcourt Boston sent Mickey to the D-League, where he has averaged 17.1 points and 10.4 rebounds a game while playing strong defense.

Which is why he’s going to be in Toronto as an All-Star.

The NBA started a D-League All-Star Game the afternoon of All-Star Saturday, and Mickey is one of the headliners. So is Jimmer Fredette, who has played most of this season for the Westchester Knicks. The D-League’s leading scorers — Elliott Williams  (29.7 PPG), Sean Kilpatrick 27.1 ppg, and Erick Green (26.7 ppg) — will be there as well.

In total, 16 players currently under an NBA contract or who have played in the NBA will take part. The game tips off tips off at 2 p.m. Eastern Saturday, Feb. 13, will air live on NBA TV.
