The NBA and ESPN are finalizing plans to televise a H-O-R-S-E shooting competition, with stars Chris Paul of Oklahoma City, Trae Young of Atlanta and Zach LaVine of Chicago among those expected to participate, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
The competition will include a couple of WNBA stars and fairly recent NBA alumni, sources said.
Players would be filmed competing at home locations — on indoor or outdoor courts — and compete shot for shot in the traditional playground game, sources said.

LaVine competed in the NBA 2K20 Players Tournament, losing in the first round last week.
The NBA suspended play on March 12 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and there is no expectation that the league can resume play anytime soon.
Current NBA isolation protocols governing players prohibit them from competing together in the same location.
