Ron Howard, Othyus Jeffers Named D-League Co-MVPs

Fort Wayne Mad Ants guard Ron Howard and current Minnesota Timberwolves and former Iowa Energy guard/forward Othyus Jeffers have been named the 2014 NBA Development League’s Co-Most Valuable Players, as voted by the NBA D-League’s 17 head coaches.

Howard (6-5, 200, Valparaiso) played in 49 regular season games for the Mad Ants, averaging a team-high and career-best 20.5 points to go with 4.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists.  Howard spearheaded Fort Wayne’s offense, leading the team in scoring 24 times and serving as the high-assist man in 22 games.  A seven-year Mad Ants veteran, Howard became the league’s all-time leading scorer on March 29 when he scored 20 points to pass Renaldo Major’s previous record of 4,252 points.

Jeffers (6-5, 210, Robert Morris) played in 44 of the Energy’s 50 regular season games before earning a GATORADE Call-Up to the Timberwolves on April 8.  He averaged a team-high 20.9 points, good for eighth-best in the NBA D-League, to go with 9.9 rebounds (fourth) and 2.2 steals (fifth).  He led Iowa in scoring 20 times and was the team’s high-rebounder in an additional 20 contests.  Jeffers scored in double figures in 43 of his 44 games with the Energy, scoring 30 or more points twice.
