The full All-Star Game selections have been announced and five European players will participate in Salt Lake City on February 19.

After Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic, and Luka Doncic, who were already announced as starters, Lauri Markkanen and Domantas Sabonis joined the mix as well.

The Finnish superstar, who delivered great performances during EuroBasket 2022, will participate for the first time in his career at the All-Star Game after averaging 24.9 points and 8.7 rebounds with the Utah Jazz this season.

Domantas Sabonis, who has been averaging almost a triple-double per game with 18.8 points, 12.4 rebounds, and 7.1 assists with the Sacramento Kings, shooting 61.5% from the field, will be an All-Star for the third time after 2020 and 2021.

The Lithuanian center has dragged the Californian team to 3rd place in the Western Conference with a 29-21 record. The Utah Jazz, instead, are 27-26, 8th in the West.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo will be the captains and select the two teams on the Draft scheduled on February 19, right before the game, at 01:30 CET.
