Durant, who missed each of the Nets' nine games ahead of the break, won't play in the All-Star Game due to a prolonged recovery from a hamstring injury. Celtics forward Jayson Tatum will replace Durant in the starting lineup, while Pacers big man Domantas Sabonis was selected as a reserve to fill the remaining roster spot.
"There is no slander to the Utah Jazz," James said following the draft, according to USA Today's Mark Medina.
"You guys got to understand. Just like in video games growing up, we never played with Utah. Even as great as Karl Malone and John Stockton was, we never picked those guys in video games. Never."
The All-Star Game takes place on March 7 in Atlanta.
