The contestants for the 2014 NBA Dunk Contest, along with the Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest, are scheduled to be announced Thursday, but of course reports are already leaking out about who's going to participate.

Damian Lillard was reported on last night, you can find more on that here. ESPN has the names of some bigger stars who could be joining Lillard.

Ross won last year's competition and is a phenomenal dunker, despite having little household name value. Ross confirmed he'll defend his title Wednesday night. There's usually a rookie who gets in as well, and this year reports indicate it's Kings rookie Ben McLemore.

McLemore can get up as well as anyone. It's an interesting, guard-only crop after years of seeing forwards compete.

Some highlights of the reported contestants:
