The G-League is officially done for the season. 

The NBA G-League announced Thursday that the remainder of the 2019-20 season will be canceled.  The league was originally suspended on March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic and was slated to conclude on March 28.

 G-League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim released a statement and reflected on the past season. 

 “While canceling the remainder of our season weighs heavily on us, we recognize that it is the most appropriate action to take for our league,” Abdur-Rahim said in the statement. 

Adam Johnson of 2 Ways & 10 Days, reported in March that players would continue to be paid as indicated in their contracts as well as access to full benefits. 

Shams Charania of The Athletic confirmed that today and said the G-League extended their health benefits

The G-League will be revealing the end-of-the-season awards for Most Valuable Player, Dennis Johnson Coach of the Year, and Rookie of the Year in the coming weeks. 

For the Stockton Kings, they will conclude the season with a 24-19 record that sees them place first in the Pacific Division and fourth in the Western Conference.
