The NBA All-Star weekend is fast-approaching and while we already knew who was taking part in the All-Star game itself, the other events are still unknown.

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins have announced that they will be taking part in the Skills Competition, joining Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns and Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.

And now we potentially some of the players taking part in the three-point contest, as Stephen Curry confirmed he will be taking part while Chris Bosh's entrance may have also been revealed.

Speaking to Brett Pollakoff of Fox Sports, Curry revealed that he plans to return to the contest and defend his crown that he won in New York last year.

“Most likely. I’ve done it three straight years and finally won one," Curry said. "Knowing I’ll be there already, I’ll probably suit up Saturday night and see if I can defend it."

"It’s a gym I’ve gotten a lot of shots up in growing up, with my dad playing up there for three years. So, it’ll be a pretty special spot to lace ‘em up and shoot some threes.”

One of Curry's opponents in Toronto could be the Miami Heat star Bosh, who was prematurely announced by Pat Riley.

One confirmed player taking part, however, is Phoenix Suns rookie Devin Booker - who has managed well in spite of the Suns shocking form - and is currently shooting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc this year.
