Among those 24 players are Fort Wayne Mad Ants players Gabe York and Trevelin Queen.
York currently ranks sixth in the G League in scoring at 24.1 points per game; his 1.9 steals per game is ninth best in the league. Queen, a two-way player with the Mad Ants and Indiana Pacers, recently returned to the Fort Wayne lineup after time with the Pacers.
