The 21 NBA players, who were chosen by league assistant coaches, will be drafted into three teams of seven. They’ll be picked and coached by three former NBA All-Stars: Pau Gasol, Deron Williams, and Joakim Noah.

The fourth team will consist of the seven G League players and will be coached by 2011 NBA champion Jason Terry.

The four squads will each play one contest to a target score of 40, with the two winners squaring off in the finals with a target score of 25 to determine the champion.
