Atlanta's Kyle Korver, Portland's Wesley Matthews, and the Los Angeles Clippers' J.J. Redick are among the six players set for the contest on Feb. 14 at the Barclays Center, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Korver is leading the NBA in three-point accuracy this season, shooting a surreal 53 percent.

Curry has participated in the past two three-point contests, and comes to New York as a starter for the Western Conference.

San Antonio's Marco Belinelli won the NBA's three-point contest in 2014.
