The field for the upcoming NBA dunk contest is filling up, with two more invites reportedly being sent out.
The dunk contest will be held at halftime of the All-Star Game in Atlanta next Saturday night.
Two young players expected to join New York’s Obi Toppin in the All-Star Slam Dunk competition on March 7: Portland’s Anfernee Simons and Indiana’s Cassius Stanley, sources tell ESPN.

Simons, like Toppin, has played a consistent bench role for his team during this season. In 29 games, he’s averaging 8.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per appearance.
Stanley, meanwhile, has only appeared in eight games as a rookie. However, he showcased his high-flying ability in college at Duke last season, so he should be a strong fit in the competition.
