Another week. Another Phoenix Sun is getting All-Star recognition.

The NBA announced on Tuesday that Chris Paul would be part of the field participating in the 2021 skills challenge.

The Suns guard will be joined by the likes of Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic, Portland Trail Blazers’ Robert Covington, New York Knicks’ Julius Randle, Indiana Pacers’ Domantas Sabonis and Orlando Magic’s Nikola Vucevic.

The event will feature an obstacle course that will showcase the finest dribbling, passing and three-point skills All-Star Weekend in Atlanta has to offer.

Sunday’s skills challenge will start at 4:30 p.m. Arizona time prior to the NBA All-Star Game at 6 p.m.

Fellow teammate and Suns guard Devin Booker will also be participating in extracurriculars on the night, as the now two-time All-Star is a participant in the three-point contest.
