During a draft of the 18 best rookies and second-year players Thursday evening, Celtics [1] Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk were placed on the same team for the 2014 Rising Stars Challenge. [2]

The two teams, which are managed by retired NBA players Chris Webber and Grant Hill [3], will face off next Friday night during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans.

The draft took players out of a pool determined by the NBA’€™s assistant coaches. Webber picked Sullinger in the fifth round, and Olynyk, who was one of the last four players chosen, was selected via a blind draw.
