WILMINGTON, DE – Philadelphia 76ers’ two-way contract player Marial Shayok was named NBA G League Player of the Week on Monday. This was the first POTW award in the new G League season. Shayok was a second round selection by the Philadelphia 76ers in this past June NBA draft. Shayok played the first three games of the Delaware Blue Coats season, in which he averaged 35 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per contest. He missed Saturday night’s loss to Canton with illness but has played 32.7 minutes per game. The gifted scorer leads the G League in points per game. His individual offensive scoring ability has been a boon for a Blue Coats team that has gotten off to a hot start offensively.
The Blue Coats return to action on Tuesday night at home. They will take on the Capital City Go-Go at 7:00 p.m.
