The WNBA is bringing back its 3-point contest to the All-Star Game.
For the first time since 2009, the league will have a 3-point shootout during halftime of the game July 22 in Seattle.
“The 3-point contest is something we’ve had before and I’ve participated in,” Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm said. “It’s fun and great for the fans and players. Everyone enjoys it.”
The event will showcase six players, who will be determined at a later date. The winner will receive a $10,000 donation to the charity of her choice.
