    LaMelo Ball, Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley are among the big names to highlight the NBA Rising Stars Challenge set for Feb. 18 in Cleveland.

    For the first time players from G League Ignite will be included in the game and projected lottery picks Scoot Henderson and Jaden Hardy were invited.

    Former G League Ignite star Jalen Green of the Rockets will play for the Rookies, but somehow Jonathan Kuminga of the Warriors was left out.

    Here are the rosters.
