The participants for the Skill Challenge at All-Star Saturday 2014 has been set, headlined by two All-Stars and a slew of rising stars.
Headlining the Skills Challenge competitors is reigning champion Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, and fellow first-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan (Raptors).
Representing two of the Western Conference’s most exciting teams will be Goran Dragić (Suns) and Reggie Jackson (Thunder).
While rookie trio Trey Burke (Jazz), Michael Carter-Williams (76ers), Victor Oladipo (Magic) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks) lead the charge for the league’s up and coming stars.
