Raptors 905’s Scott Suggs added to D-League All-Star Game

Ronald Roberts will have company on the East side for the D-League All-Star Game on Saturday.
Raptors 905 shooting guard Scott Suggs has been added to the game, the team announced Thursday, replacing Keith Appling. Appling is dealing with a sprained thumb and will be unavailable.
Suggs was already scheduled to be at Ricoh Coliseum for the event on Saturday, as he’ll participate in the 3-Point Shootout. John Jordan will be taking part in the Dunk Contest, too, giving the 905 representatives in every event. Roberts, remember, was voted by the coaches to the All-Star Game and is expected to play despite missing two of the team’s last three games due to a hip contusion that’s not believed to be serious.
It’s a nice nod for the 26-year-old Suggs, who decided to do a second go-round of the D-League following a season in France. In 32 games, he’s averaging 16.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while knocking down 43.6 percent of his threes, often taking lead guard duties from point guard Shannon Scott when no Toronto Raptors are on assignment. A solid defender who brings a necessary dose of poise and maturity to an otherwise inexperienced squad, Suggs has emerged as one of the voices of leadership as the 905 have turned their season around in the last month.
He’s also been writing a diary on his season, which you can find at Upside & Motor.
