2023 Dunk Contest Participants

The 2023 Dunk Contest will feature NBA players Jericho Sims (New York Knicks), Trey Murphy III (New Orleans Pelicans), and KJ Martin (Houston Rockets). Mac McClung (Delaware Blue Coats) will also participate as a member of the NBA G League.

Shaedon Sharpe from the Portland Trail Blazers opted out of this contest, choosing to focus his efforts on the current season. That allowed Sims to enter this contest. McClung has been known for his high-flying dunks since his Georgetown days, and is the first G League member to take part in this event. Murphy and Martin enter as unknowns.
