The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo were the two leading vote-getters, making them the captains for the third-annual All-Star Draft for the second year in a row.
In the 2020 NBA All-Star Draft, James and Antetokounmpo will draft the eight remaining players from the starter pool in the First Round and then all 14 players from the reserve pool in the Second Round. The captains will make their selections without regard to a player's conference affiliation or position.
By virtue of being the top overall finisher in fan voting, James will make the first pick in the First Round (Starters) during the NBA All-Star Draft. Antetokounmpo will have the first pick in the Second Round (Reserves). After the first pick in a round, picks will alternate until all players in that round have been selected.
- East All-Star Starters:
- Giannis Antetokounmpo (captain), Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Kemba Walker, Trae Young
- West All-Star Starters:
- Anthony Davis, Luka Doncic, James Harden, LeBron James (captain), Kawhi Leonard
TNT will announce the reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, on Friday, Jan. 31 during TNT NBA Tip-Off.
