NBA All-Stars Chris Paul and Trae Young and Chicago Bulls leading scorer Zach LaVine have signed on to participate in a televised H-O-R-S-E competition, ESPN reported on Wednesday.

Paul, in his first season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Young, the second-year point guard for the Atlanta Hawks, are among multiple NBA and WNBA players and NBA alumni expected to compete, according to ESPN.

Due to travel and proximity constraints imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic, players would compete by shooting at separate locations. The event reportedly would air on ESPN.

The NBA has been on hiatus since March 12.

Expectations for a return will not be addressed until at least May, commissioner Adam Silver said recently.
