Sources: CP3, Young, LaVine plan on H-O-R-S-E

Plans by the NBA and ESPN to televise a H-O-R-S-E competition are nearing completion, and Chris Paul, Trae Young and Zach LaVine are among the league’s stars expected to participate, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.

The competition will also include a couple of WNBA players and recent NBA alumni, sources told ESPN.

Discussions have been ongoing among the NBA, NBPA and ESPN about a competition among several players in isolation — presumably using home gyms — that would include them competing shot for shot in the traditional playground game, sources said.

The NBA has been shut down since March 12 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and there’s no expectation that the league can resume play anytime soon. Current NBA isolation protocols governing players make it impossible for players to compete in the same location.
