Selby had already wrapped up co-MVP honors prior to his final game of the week thanks to lighting it up from behind the three-point line. Through four games, the second-year guard had nailed 24 of his 34 attempts from beyond the arc (70.6 percent) while averaging 27.5 points and 2.5 steals prior to the final game of the Summer.

Lillard, the Portland Trail Blazers first round pick, showed that his standout career at Weber State might translate better than most thought it might to the next level. The quick-footed guard showed quite a bit of athleticism as he averaged 26.5 points, 5.3 assists and four rebounds through four games before sitting out the final game.

The remainder of the Summer League All-Stars according to the league are as follows:
