D-Fenders Fortson named D-League All-Star

Courtney Fortson of the D-Fenders was named to the 2013 NBA Development League All-Star Team.

Fortson, a guard who has played in the NBA for the Houston Rockets and Clippers, is averaging 18.4 points, 6.3 assists and 1.8 steals a game.

Darius-Johnson Odom is technically leading the D-Fenders in points per game but left the team once the Lakers waived him in early January. He’s since joined Russian team Spartak St. Petersburg.

The D-League All-Star Game will be held in Houston at the NBA All-Star Jam Session on Feb. 16.

Former Lakers guard Andrew Goudelock was also named to the team. Goudelock, who was cut from the Lakers prior to the season after one year with the club, is playing for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Goudelock is averaging 18.2 points and 5.2 assists a game for the Vipers after a midseason trade from the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

In 40 appearances with the Lakers, Goudelock averaged 4.4 points a game.
