Trae Young, Zach LaVine, Chris Paul to Compete in H-O-R-S-E

The NBA’s televised H-O-R-S-E competition is starting to take shape.

Thunder point guard Chris Paul, Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine and Hawks floor general Trae Young are reportedly set to face off.

The showcase, inspired by the League’s current hiatus due to the coronavirus global pandemic, is also expected to include WNBA stars and retired NBA players.


The NBA and ESPN are finalizing plans to televise a H-O-R-S-E shooting competition, with stars Chris Paul of Oklahoma City, Trae Young of Atlanta and Zach LaVine of Chicago among those expected to participate, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

LaVine competed in the NBA 2K20 Players Tournament, losing in the first round last week.

The NBA suspended play on March 12 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and there is no expectation that the league can resume play anytime soon.

Current NBA isolation protocols governing players prohibit them from competing together in the same location.
