INDIANAPOLIS – Ind. – Pacers guard Victor Oladipo will take place in the 2018 Slam Dunk Contest during All-Star weekend in Los Angeles, claims UPROXX NBA reporter Oliver Maroney.

Oladipo’s entry gives the Blue and Gold a chance to win back-to-back dunk contests, as Glenn Robinson III took the 2017 title.

The NBA will announce All-Star reserves as selected by the league’s head coaches Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. Oladipo hopes to hear his name called for the first time in his career.
