Danny Green announced via his Twitter feed that he would be participating in a All-Star game for charity. The game will be played this Saturday in New York City at 12:30 pm EST. All proceeds will be donated to the Jamie and Paige Malone Foundation and the Michael Mulhall University of Scranton Scholarship per their official website.

In addition to the game, fans will be treated to the usual scope of activities — a three-point competition, dunk contest and halftime festivities. Hall of Famer Chris Mullin will coach one of the teams.
