Former NBA All-Stars Chris Webber and Grant Hill are the GM's of the Rising Stars teams, and they constructed their teams via a fantasy draft that took place this week.
Team Webber selected Nets rookie Mason Plumlee during the draft. Mason's brother Miles, of the Phoenix Suns, was named as an injury-replacement for Team Hill.
The siblings were teammates in college at Duke, and they matched up against one another for the first time when the Nets and Suns faced off in Phoenix in November.
Miles Plumlee, a 25-year-old sophomore, is averaging 9.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. He's started 50 games this season as Phoenix's starting center.
Mason Plumlee, a 23-year-old rookie, is averaging 6.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks per game. The younger Plumlee has played 39 games, getting one start.
