Brown and Leslie ran together with the Wolfpack from 2010-13.
This past year, Zo won the G-League MVP award, averaging 18.9 points (led the team), 8.9 assists (led the team) and 5.2 rebounds per game. On defense, he led the team with 1.8 steals per game. After serving as a 2-way player for the Raptors this season, they signed up for their 2018 playoff run. This was Brown’s 5th season in the G-League, and has played in 77 games over 4 seasons in the NBA.
Leslie has played 4 seasons in the G-League, but has yet to make it up to an NBA roster. He has also played overseas 3 seasons (some overlapping in the same year with G-League play), most recently with Antalya BSB in Turkey in 2017-18. In 33 games with Antalya last year, he averaged 18.6 points and 8.7 rebounds.
