SALT LAKE CITY (January 26, 2021) – The Salt Lake City Stars, the NBA G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz, announced today their 10-player roster and coaching staff. The team will compete at the NBA G League single-site campus in the 2021 NBA G League season which is being held at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
The Stars will return Malik Benlevi, Trevon Bluiett, Mike Scott and Paul White from the 2019-20 team that finished the season atop the Western Conference with a 30-12 (.714) record, amassing the most wins in a single season in Salt Lake City team history. The club also won the first-ever MGM Resorts NBA G League Winter Showcase Tournament last December in the midst of a 14-game winning streak, the longest in the NBA G League last season and tied for second-longest in a single season in league history.
New faces on the team include former BYU and Utah Valley star Jake Toolson, NBA veterans Yogi Ferrell and Malcolm Miller, as well as Romaro Gill, Marcus Graves and Tre Scott. Ferrell and Miller bring more than 300 games of NBA experience with them, including Miller winning an NBA championship with the 2018-19 Toronto Raptors and Ferrell appearing in two games with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season. The returning player rights of Miller and Graves were acquired via trade earlier this year with Miller coming from Northern Arizona and Graves joining the Stars from Stockton.
Nathan Peavy begins his first season as head coach after serving as an assistant with the Stars since the 2017-18 season. Peavy’s staff will include returning assistant coaches Lowell Egan and Corey Hawkins as well as new addition Ronald Allen as assistant coach/player development. Juan Torres will return as the director of sports performance and the Stars welcome Alicia Yamamoto as medical services coordinator.
