OKC Thunder's Chris Paul has been named a 2020 NBA All-Star, the NBA announced Thursday.

The 34-year-old point guard is scheduled to make his 10th career All-Star appearance and his first appearance since 2016. 

In 48 games this season, Paul is averaging 17.1 points, a team-leading 6.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and a team-best 1.58 steals per game.

The eight-time All-NBA honoree has led Oklahoma City to a 23-9 record since Thanksgiving, good for the third-best record in the NBA and the most wins among Western Conference teams during that span.

The All-Star game will be played at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16, in Chicago.
