Bradley Beal Named to the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge Roster

Bradley Beal was named to the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge roster today. This is a nice honor for the young shooting guard whose season started slowly but has since picked up. Beal is nailing 50% of his threes in January while scoring 15 points a game.

Inconspicuously omitted from the Rising Stars roster are the Wizards’ very own Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton. This must have been an oversight and I expect it to be corrected in the coming hours.

The rest of the players named to the roster via USA Today:

  • Anthony Davis, New Orleans Hornets
  • Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons
  • Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Bobcats
  • Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Brandon Knight, Detroit Pistons
  • Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs
  • Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers
  • Chandler Parsons, Houston Rockets
  • Alexey Shved, Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors
  • Tristan Thompson, Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic
  • Dion Waiters, Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Kemba Walker,Charlotte Bobcats
  • Tyler Zeller, Cleveland Cavaliers
