Smith (6-3, 195) holds averages of 14.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 0.97 steals and 28.4 minutes per game in 39 games (all starts) for Dallas this season.

Saric, who competed in the freshmen and sophomore showcase last season, said he was happy that he and Simmons were named to the Rising Stars team, but said he had wished that Simmons would have been picked for the main event All-Star Game along with Embiid. Mitchell leads all rookies in points scored (863), 20-plus point games (21), is second in three-pointers made (101) and is the first rookie since Tyreke Evans (2009-10) to average over 19 points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal per contest.

The rest of the World roster includes Bogdan Bogdanovic (Kings), Dillon Brooks (Grizzlies), Buddy Hield (Kings), Lauri Markkanen (Bulls), Jamal Murray (Nuggets), Frank Ntilikina (Knicks), Domantas Sabonis (Pacers). This year, the game will feature one player pulling double duty, as Joel Embiid, technically an National Basketball Association sophomore, will play for the World team and in the All-Star Game on Sunday night.

National Basketball Association assistant coaches were again responsible for selecting the players to compete in the Rising Stars event this year.
