 CLEVELAND (AP) - Kyrie Irving won't be going to All-Star weekend alone.
The Cavaliers point guard was selected along with teammates Tristan Thompson and rookies Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller to play in next month's Rising Stars Challenge during All-Star activities in Houston. Irving has already been picked as an All-Star reserve, and he could start for the Eastern Conference because of a season-ending injury to Boston's Rajon Rondo.
Irving was named MVP of the Rising Stars game last season, scoring 34 points and making all eight 3-pointers.
Also, the Cavs assigned forward Kevin Jones to their Canton affiliate in the NBA Development League on Wednesday.
Jones has appeared in 15 games for Cleveland, averaging 1.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in nine minutes. He's averaged 23.8 points and 12.3 rebounds in six games for the Charge.
