The lineup for this year’s Slam Dunk Contest in Toronto has been finalized, according to a report.

Cleveland.com’s Chris Haynes says the competition lineup will include Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond, Nuggets guard Will Barton, Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon, and defending champion Zach LaVine. The lineup will officially be announced on Thursday.

The contest will be held on Saturday, Feb. 13 at All-Star Weekend in Toronto.

LaVine will be looking to become the first back-to-back champion since Nate Robinson, who won in 2009 and 2010. Robinson is also the all-time leader with three career wins in the contest, so LaVine would be on his way to tying Nate if he can win in Toronto.
