Players who’ve attempted more than seven 3-pointers per game while making more than 40% of them this season:
Sharing company with only the greatest shooter of all-time will earn Hield a spot in the 3-point contest.
Carmichael Dave of KHTK Sports 1140:
Sacramento getting three players into the Rising Stars Challenge for the second straight year speaks to the team’s nice collection of young talent. Bogdan Bogdanovic (who won MVP last year) and De'Aaron Fox return to the game. No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley III replaces Hield, who ages out.
Hield has a chance in the 3-point contest, though the league is better from beyond the arc than ever. He’ll certainly have plenty of competition.
