The NBA announced the rosters for the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star Weekend in Chicago. Headlining the group of rookies and sophomores is Luka Doncic, Trae Young, Zion Williamson and Ja Morant, all partaking in the game between youngsters. Here’s a look at all the participants via Shams Charania:

As you can see, outside those four big names, there’s a lot of talent. Team U.S.A is stacked with Young, Zion and Morant. Luka has some help with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Deandre Ayton. Potential Most Improved Player Devonte’ Graham is in the mix as well on Team U.S.A. We’ll see if Doncic can get/stay healthy enough to play in the game. Wendell Carter Jr. is listed on the roster, but Williamson is actually replacing him in the game, as noted by beat reporters.
