Article Summary:

The NBA announced the 12 rookies, 12 sophomores and four Ignite players who will be in Cleveland in a few weeks to play in the revamped NBA Rising Stars Challenge, the Friday night of All-Star Weekend. The players were selected by a vote of NBA assistant coaches.

The new Rising Stars format starts with a draft: The coaches will draft the players into teams of 7. The winners of those two games will play a championship game to a score of 25.

The new format should enliven what is often the least competitive and least interesting part of All-Star Weekend.
