Milwaukee Bucks guard Khris Middleton has been selected to take part in the three-point shooting contest as part of the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend.
Middleton will go up against a star-studded field that includes Stephen Curry of Golden State and former Buck J-J Redick of the L-A Clippers, who leads the league in three-point percentage accuracy.
Middleton is 15th, hitting three’s at a 41.2-percent clip from beyond the arc. He’ll be the first Bucks player in the three-point contest since Ray Allen in 2002, and he’s the second Buck invited to the All-Star festivities, joining Jabari Parker who will be in the Rising Stars Challenge next Friday.
The Bucks are back in action Friday night against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City.
