The Dallas Mavericks still have to play a basketball game, but it may fall as the fifth biggest story of the day. The headliner stealer was trading Kristaps Porzingis to the Washington Wizards for Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans. Dallas also signed Dorian Finney-Smith to an extension and are rumored to be favorites to land Goran Dragic after he is bought out. Superstar Luka Doncic finding what All-Star team he will play on also happened on Feb. 10.
Doncic was selected by LeBron James for the third straight year as he was the King’s first pick in the reserve draft. It will be the first time that Doncic is not a starter in the All-Star game. The 22-year-old superstar will come off the bench on Feb. 20 in Cleveland.
Here is a look at the rest of Team LeBron’s roster, and what fans should expect from Luka in his third All-Star game.
