The Under Armour Elite 24 game, the seventh annual gathering of some of the top talent in the country for an event in Los Angeles, Calif., now has half of its roster set, announced Tuesday.
The first 12 players are headlined by Andrew Wiggins, the Canadian star from the Class of 2014 who dominated the summer circuit this year, along with Andrew and Aaron Harrison, the most coveted recruiting package deal in the country.
Among the others on the roster are Jermaine Lawrence, who broke out during the spring on the AAU circuit, as well as Julius Randle, who played in the 2011 game and is coming off a memorable battle with Wiggins at Nike Peach Jam.
The festivities in Venice Beach will take place August 24-25, with the Elite 24 game on August 25, preceded on the 24th by the dunk contest.
Check out the initial half of the roster below, with team names, dunk contest participants, and the rest of the Elite 24 participants to be announced in early August.
