John Wall invited to Slam Dunk Contest, will decide soon

Blake Murphy

You may soon be able to add John Wall's name next to Terrence Ross' for the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest field.

With Paul George and Dwight Howard reportedly having turned down invites to the contest, the league continues to try and bring some star power to the event. According to a CSN interview, Wall has been asked to participate but remains undecided:

Have you been asked by the league to participate in the dunk or skills contest on Saturday before the game itself? 

Yes, both I'll make decisions tomorrow or sometime next week. They have asked me. I'm not sure. I don't know what I'll do yet. I'm shocked after the news I got tonight so I can't even tell you. 

Apologies if you're a big fan of the vaguely-defined skills competition, but the Dunk Contest is All-Star Saturday Night's marquee draw. Adding Wall would provide some nice intrigue. 

And hey, if you bust out 360's in-game, you must love to dunk.
