NBA All-Star Team Reserves

Draymond Green and Klay Thompson will be joining the reigning MVP to give the Golden State Warriors a trio of All-Stars for next month’s midseason NBA showcase in Toronto.

The West coaches’ choices for the reserves were announced Thursday on TNT, a week after the starters as voted on by fans were revealed, a group anchored by Stephen Curry.

The rest of the reserves for the West, to be coached by Gregg Popovich, for the Feb. 14 game:

  • James Harden of the Houston Rockets
  • Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers
  • Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Hornets
  • DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings

East coach Tyronn Lue of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the East coaches left his Kevin Love out of his choices, opting instead for a frontcourt of reserves anchored by first-time All-Star Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons.

The rest of the East team:

  • Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls
  • DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors
  • Paul Millsap of the Atlanta Hawks
  • Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat
  • John Wall of the Washington Wizards
  • Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics

The reserves were selected by the head coaches in each conference, who had to vote for seven players: two guards, three frontcourt players and two additional players at any position. They weren’t allowed to vote for players from their own team.
