New York Knicks forward Julius Randle was named an All-Star reserve for this year’s All-Star Game in Salt Lake City, Utah on Feb. 19. 

Julius Randle was officially named an All-Star tonight, the second selection of his career, both with the Knicks. He is currently averaging 24.7 points per game along with 10.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists. 


After a down year last season, Randle has most certainly become a catalyst for New York once more, often being the best player on the floor for them. Despite the team being a seventh seed, his performance alongside Jalen Brunson has been solid so far this year and has helped them to remain in the fight to remain out of the play-in. While his season started off rocky, he has been one of the most dominant players in the league over the last few months. 

Brunson, notably, was not named a reserve guard for the All-Star game. He, along with guards like James Harden and Jimmy Butler, fell victim to a very stacked Eastern Conference guard lineup.

Randle will join teammate Quentin Grimes, recently named to the Rising Stars challenge, in Utah for All-Star Weekend. The game is scheduled for February 19th, so mark your calendars.
