Today Alonzo Gee of the Spurs affiliate Austin Toros was named the NBDL Rookie of the Year:

“Austin Toros guard Alonzo Gee, who ranked in the top 10 in the NBA D-League in regular season scoring, has been selected by the League’s 16 coaches as the NBA Development League’s 2009-10 Rookie of the Year. Gee will be presented with the award by Chris Alpert, Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel for the NBA D-League . . .”

Head Coach of the Austin Toros Qynn Snyder had some words on Gee winning the award:

“On behalf of the Toros and Spurs organizations, we are pleased and excited to have been able to share in Alonzo’s success this year. It has been a privilege to coach him,” said Quin Snyder, Toros head coach. “He has been relentless in his commitment to develop as a basketball player and most importantly, Alonzo is a great teammate. He is a young man that has had a positive impact on all of us, and we congratulate him on the award.”

Some good news finally coming out of the Spurs organization despite the trade rumors about Tony Parker and Tiago Splitter talk to name a few rumors going around.

Congratulations Alonzo Gee!
