CSNChicago.com will be in Indianapolis for Saturday's exhibition game between the Washington, D.C.-based Goodman League and the Indy Pro-Am. The game, called the "Ball For It All Classic," will be held at the University of Indianapolis' Nicoson Hall.

Organized by Indy Pro-Am founder Carlos Knox, the game will reportedly feature Indiana natives like Clippers guard Eric Gordon, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph, Hawks guard Jeff Teague and Pacers players George Hill, Paul George and Lance Stephenson, among others, for the Indianapolis team.

The visitors will reportedly bring Wizards players John Wall and Andray Blatche, Washingtonians Michael Beasley of the Timberwolves and Jeff Green of the Celtics, as well as Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins, Mavericks swingman Caron Butler and Chicagoan Will Bynum of the Pistons.

Two-time reigning NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant was scheduled to play, but will apparently miss the contest due to his role in an upcoming movie filming in Louisiana this weekend, though he confirmed via Twitter that he will attempt to participate in a Philadelphia exhibition game Sunday, joining LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and others in a contest against a group of Philadelphia-based NBA players.
