The Cavaliers will be represented at NBA All-Star Weekend after all.

Daniel Gibson will compete in the Three-Point Shootout on All-Star Saturday, February 19. This year's All-Star Game and festivities are taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Joining Gibson in the field will be a pair of Celtics -- Ray Allen, who's two 3-pointers away from breaking the NBA career mark, and defending champion Paul Pierce -- as well as the NBA's defending scoring champ and current scoring leader Kevin Durant, James Jones and Dorell Wright.

Gibson finished second in the Three-Point Shootout in 2008. He's shooting .439 on 3-pointers this season, ranking 10th in the league.
