Phoenix Suns big man Alan Williams was named to the 2016 All-NBA Summer League First Team while teammate Tyler Ulis earned mention on the Second Team, a media vote determined Sunday.

Williams led the Summer League by averaging 11.2 rebounds per game. He also scored 11.8 points per game and was the only player to average a double-double.

Ulis tied Summer League MVP Tyus Jones of Minnesota by averaging 6.3 assists per game — that could change considering Jones plays again in the championship game. Additionally, Ulis averaged 14.5 points and 2.8 steals. He also hit a buzzer-beating 35-foot three-pointer that gave the Suns a quarterfinals overtime win over Denver on Saturday.

Williams and Ulis earned the honors after their 93-83 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the semifinals of the Las Vegas tournament. For the T-Wolves, Jones earned Summer League MVP honors after averaging 19.4 points, 6.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game, including 29 points and 6 assists Sunday against Phoenix.

Suns guard Devin Booker, who played the first two games in Las Vegas, was not eligible in the voting because he did not play the required three games.
