2021-22 G League Ignite
- 14.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.9 blocks, 2.2 turnovers, 0.4 3-pointers, 29.8 minutes per game. 48.7% field goal, 31.3% 3-point shooting.

Foster didn't look too out of place competing against experienced men in his first G League season. He nearly averaged a double-double with 14.8 points and 8.8 rebounds, while showing the occasional ability to stretch the floor with his 31.3% three-point shooting. He's the blueprint for a stereotypical stretch forward in today's NBA and should make an impact wherever he lands.
