Lakers' Shannon Brown will be in the NBA dunk contest
The reserve point guard will be joined by New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson and Charlotte forward Gerald Wallace. A fourth player will be determined through a "dunk-off" between Clippers guard Eric Gordon and Toronto forward DeMar DeRozan.
The dunk contest takes place Feb. 13 at American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Robinson won the event last season and in 2006. Orlando center Dwight Howard won the contest in 2008.
