Trail Blazers rookie Shaedon Sharpe reportedly in for All-Star Dunk Contest

The Trail Blazers turned some heads by taking Shaedon Sharpe with the No.7 pick last NBA Draft, it was a bet on his athleticism (a bet that has paid off so far, he is averaging 7.9 points per game and showing promise).

That athleticism will be on display All-Star weekend as Shape has agreed to participate in the NBA All-Star Saturday Night Dunk Contest, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Fans in Salt Lake City — and watching/streaming around the globe — are in for a show.

The Dunk Contest is part of the All-Star Saturday night festivities — along with the Skills Challenge and the 3-Point Contest — during All-Star weekend in Salt Lake City this year. The weekend activities start on Feb. 17, with the Dunk Contest on the 18th and the actual All-Star Game on Feb. 19 (fan voting for the All-Star Game is still open).
