The two teams for the Celebrity Game at NBA All-Star Weekend will collectively feature Kane Brown and 21 Savage as players, Giannis and Lindsey Vonn as coaches, and Dwyane Wade as a captain.

Superstars from music, entertainment, and sports will go head-to-head in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN from the Jon M. Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City. The list of celebrities includes Kane Brown, 21 Savage, Janelle Monae, and Ozuna, among others, the league announced Wednesday.

Team Wade will be coached by Giannis Antetokounmpo, with brothers Thanasis and Alex serving as assistant coaches alongside Olympic skiing legend Lindsey Vonn. A surprise guest will coach Team Ryan, with Houston Astros All-Star third baseman Alex Bregman acting as an assistant.
