As per BBallinsiders.com writer Eric Pincus the pool of players for the 3-point contest is almost full.

[quote_box]The pool for the three-point shootout has yet to be named but the early list, subject to change, includes Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors), Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves) and Marco Belinelli (San Antonio Spurs) representing the West.

Belinelli is leading the league with a three-point shooting percentage of 49.3 percent.

Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers) is expected to have a chance to defend his title. Kyle Korver (Atlanta Hawks) is also believed to be getting an invite.

The sixth participant isn’t clear just yet, but the final shooter would come from an Eastern Conference franchise.[/quote_box]

Pincus names Teletovic of the Nets (43.6 percent) as a potential participant in the contest as well Anthony Tolliver of the Charlotte Bobcats (44.5 percent).

Teletovic would be a great addition in all Nets fans eyes and it seems there has been some talk about it as per the tweet below from Teletovic.

The Bosnian has also discussed in previous days that maybe he would pay homage to Drazen Petrovic in a similar way to what Anthony Morrow did in 2012.

Take a look back at Morrow in the contest.


The NBA will be announcing the field for the contest sometime this week as per league insiders.
