Wayne Ellington of the Miami Heat will be a participant in the NBA 3-Point contest per Tim Reynolds.

“Can confirm that Heat guard Wayne Ellington has accepted a spot in the 3-point contest at the All-Star Game.”

“Ellington will try to join Glen Rice, Jason Kapono, Daequan Cook and James Jones as Heat players to win the 3-point contest. (Quentin Richardson, Voshon Lenard and Ray Allen also won, but not as Heat players.)”

Chris Haynes reports Stephen Curry won’t participate in the 3-point shootout, and names the players who will compete.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson, Miami Heat guard Wayne Ellington and Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal will be in the field at All-Star Weekend on Saturday, Feb. 17, in Los Angeles, league sources tell ESPN. Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker will also be included this year.”

Ellington is too much of a gentleman to ask a Larry Bird question.

As the story goes, Larry Bird walked into the locker room minutes before the 3-point Contest and asked, “So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?”
