  • Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker left goes for a layup against the Minnesota Lynx

Elena Delle Donne of the Washington Mystics and Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks will serve as team captains and draft the two teams.

The game will be played at Target Center on July 28. The teams they choose will be announced at the start of Thursday's 8 p.m. ET game on ESPN2, when Delle Donne's Mystics face Dallas. The WNBA is going with a new format this season, similar to the change the National Basketball Association made for its All-Star Game, to have the top two vote-getters as captains who choose their teams from the other 20 players voted in. Seattle's Sue Bird was selected for her 11th All-Star appearance, breaking a tie for most in WNBA history with retired in star Tamika Catchings.

Through 23 games, Gray is averaging 14.8 points, 5.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 steals for the Sparks. While the selection is no surprise for Delle Donne, who was one of the top two vote getters and will also serve as one of the team captains, it underscores what has been a sparkling season so far for the DE native.

Last year, Stewart was billed as an early All-Star Game MVP favorite, but the 6-foot-4 burgeoning star forward finished with nine points, six rebounds and six assists for a West team that claimed a 130-121 victory. However, she will remain a part of the All-Star Game. She might have been snubbed once again if the league adhered to picking East and West All-Star teams as it had in previous years.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Real Madrid to join Los Blancos this summer. The 59-year-old Sarri, who was coach of Serie A club Napoli from 2015-18, is delighted to be at Chelsea .

She is one of 22 players selected as an all-star by fans, WNBA players and head coaches, and media. Information on the game's starting lineups is expected to come Friday, July 27 on ESPN2.

Hughes will lead Team Delle Donne while Team Parker will be guided by Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello.

Still, the Storm is one of four teams with three WNBA All-Stars, including Minnesota, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
