NBA All-Star: Kings' Hield, Bogdanovic selected to Rising Stars game

Your Highway 1 Bucket List

Kings' De'Aaron Fox, who was picked No. 5 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, did not make the USA team Rising Stars roster.

Kings guards Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield have been named to the World Team for the Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles.

Though Fox is listed as day-to-day with an injury, he's averaged 10.4 points, a team-leading 4.3 assists in 26.5 minutes of action as a rookie. He ranked tied for first among qualified rookies in blocks per game, second in field-goal percentage (59) and fourth in rebounds. Tyreke Evans was MVP of the game as a rookie in 2010.

Hield makes his second-straight appearance after being selected as a rookie last season.

The 21-year-old becomes the 14th Jazz player to participate in a Rising Stars or rookie challenge, joining Bryon Russell (1994), Andrei Kirilenko (2002, 2003), Deron Williams (2006, 2007), Paul Millsap (2007, 2008), Ronnie Brewer (2008), Derrick Favors (2012), Gordon Hayward (2012), Trey Burke (2014, 2015), Rodney Hood (2015), Rudy Gobert (2015), Danté Exum (2015, 2017), Raul Neto (2016) and Trey Lyles (2016, 2017). The coaches also picked a minimum of three first-year players and three second-year players for each team. Simmons is widely viewed as the favorite to win Rookie of the Year.

Three other guards taken in the 2017 draft made the U.S. Team roster in front of him, including the Lakers Lonzo Ball, Dennis Smith Jr. from Dallas and Utah's Donovan Mitchell.

The NBA's assistant coaches chose the rosters for the Mtn Dew Kickstart Rising Stars, with each of the league's 30 teams submitting one ballot per coaching staff. Coaches selected four guards, four frontcourt players and two players at either position group for each team.
