Jordan averages 14.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for the Reno Bighorns. He played in 21 games for the New York Knicks last season.
The All-Star players were selected by a vote of the NBA D-League's 16 head coaches and broken into two teams by league officials.
Players were eligible to be selected based on having played in half of their team's games through Jan. 27.
