Paul George isn't the only player on the Pacers in Toronto for NBA All-Star weekend. D-League rep Rakeem Christmas is also there to play in the D-League showcase game.

NBA All-Star Saturday is often as entertaining as the ASG on Sunday. With the D-League All-Star game as part of the festivities, the Pacers have another player in the mix with big man Rakeem Christmas earning his way with solid play for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants while on assignment for the Pacers. Both Chrstmas and Shayne Whittington have fared well in Fort Wayne which gives the Pacers more young assets to work with for future considerations.

Here are the big events on Saturday.

2-4 p.m.: NBA D-League All-Star Game/Dunk Contest (NBA TV)
