The rosters are voted on by the assistant coach of each of the 30 teams. The ballot itself consisted of four front court players, four guards, and two additional write-ins. Assistant coaches also had to choose a minimum of three first-year and three second-year players on their ballot. Coaches were prohibited from voting for players on their own team.
The Rising Stars challenge will take place on February 14.
