LOS ANGELES - Terrence Ross we knew about, but DeMar DeRozan is going to be taking part on All-Star Saturday night as well a week from tomorrow when the league’s dunk contest, three-point shooting contest and skills challenge take place.

Ross will defend his dunk title against Portland’s Damian Lillard, Washington’s John Wall, Indiana’s Paul George, Golden State’s Harrison Barnes, and Sacramento’s Ben McLemore.

DeRozan will team up with Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo in the team skills challenge which will pit two Eastern Conference teams against one another with the winning advancing to the final against the best of the two western Conference teams.

Also representing the East will be Orlando’s Victor Oladipo and Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams, while the west teams consist of Lillard and Utah’s Trey Burke up against OKC’s Reggie Jackson and Phoenix Suns’ point guard Goran Dragic.
