Mac McClung, a guard for the Philadelphia 76ers, has been announced as a participant in this year’s Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star Weekend.

The contest will take place on February 20 in Cleveland, Ohio. McClung, who is known for his explosive athleticism, will be looking to wow the crowd with his dunking abilities.
