“I want to win it.”


If the NBA calls, Bones Hyland is in.

Hyland told The Denver Post this week that he’d love to participate in the NBA’s 3-point contest at next month’s All-Star weekend in Salt Lake City.

“I do, for sure,” he said. “If it happens, it happens. I want to win it. I want to be in it.”

Hyland, according to a league source, was on a preliminary list of players the league was considering inviting to the competition. All-Star weekend will take place next month from Feb. 17-19.

“If it happens, that’ll be dope,” he said.

Last season, Minnesota big man Karl-Anthony Towns won the 3-point contest among the eight-man field. The rest of the participants included Trae Young, C.J. McCollum, Zach LaVine, Desmond Bane, Fred VanVleet, Luke Kennard and Patty Mills.
