–Center Greg Monroe and point guard Brandon Knight have been selected for the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, Feb. 24, in Orlando during All-Star weekend.

Monroe, who leads the team in scoring and rebounding, was a member of the Rookie Team during last year’s event at the All-Star game. Knight is the second-highest scoring rookie this season behind Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving.

The participants in the Rising Stars Challenge were selected by the NBA’s assistant coaches. For the first time, rookies and sophomores will be mixed together on teams. TNT analysts Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal will serve as the general managers of the two teams, each with nine-man rosters. Barkley and O’Neal will draft their teams on Thursday, Feb. 16.
