Simons, Stanley to Dunk


Anfernee Simons, Cassius Stanley Join NBA Slam Dunk Contest Field

If you’re looking for gravitas and can’t-miss names, you will be disappointed.

The NBA appears to be close to finalizing its list of participants for the 2021 Slam Dunk Contest, which is slated to take place on March 7 during halftime of the All-Star Game.

Earlier in the week, New York Knicks rookie Obi Toppin got selected as the first entry for the contest. Now, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Anfernee Simons of the Portland Trail Blazers and rookie Cassius Stanley of the Indiana Pacers are expected to join him. It remains unknown if reigning champion Derrick Jones Jr. will look to defend his title.

For those who have not been able to see Simons dunk, the shooting guard gave a sneak peek of what to expect last year.

“Skinny guy that floats,” said Simons last year. “A lot of people want to see guys who aren’t the tallest, skinny but able to jump out the gym, kind of float in the air, like Ja Morant. He’s able to float. People like to see that.”

The names aren’t flashy by any means, but expect some elite explosiveness!
