Justin A. Cohn | The Journal Gazette

The two-game stint with the Mad Ants is over for Joe Young and Rakeem Christmas, who were recalled to the NBA's Indiana Pacers.

Young averaged 10.5 points and 4.5 assists for the Mad Ants in their two losses at the D-League Showcase in Mississauga, Ontario. Christmas averaged 2.5 points and 3 rebounds.

Additionally, the NBA announced that the Minnesota Timberwolves have purchased the Iowa Energy, becoming the 18th team to own and operate a D-League team.

The Energy's affiliation with the Memphis Grizzlies will end after this season. Both the Timberwolves and Grizzlies were affiliated with the Mad Ants before they were purchased by the Pacers in 2015.
