NBA All-Star Game 2020: Who are the participants for the Taco Bell Skills Challenge?

The 17th Taco Bell® Skills Challenge, part of the All-Saturday festivities at United Center in Chicago, is headlined by defending champion Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics) and previous winners in Spencer Dinwiddie (Brooklyn Nets) and Patrick Beverley (LA Clippers).

All-Stars Pascal Sikam (Toronto Raptors), Domantas Sabonis (Indiana Pacers), Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks), and Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat).

Oklahoma City Thunder's second-year guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will replace Derrick Rose, who is recovering from an abductor strain.

All-Star Saturday Night will take place from 6:30 AM onwards on Sunday, Feb. 16.

If Tatum repeats, he will be only the third player ever (Dwyane Wade and Damian Lillard) and first since Damian Lillard in 2014 to defend their Taco Bell Skills Challenge title.

He will join the likes of Wade (2006, 07), Steve Nash (2005, 2010), and Lillard (2013, 14) to win two Skills Challenge Contests.
