Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been added to the 2020 Skills Challenge at the upcoming NBA All-Star weekend in Chicago on Feb. 14-16.

The former Wildcat will replace Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose in the contest.

Joining SGA is a familiar face – Miami heat center and first-time All-Star Bam Adebayo. Here is a list of the other six participants.

*Remember, SGA replaces Rose.*

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum will defend his title as the reigning champ, while Patrick Beverley (LAC) and Spencer Dinwiddie (BKN) will look to win the award for the second time.

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge will take place on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
