NBA All-Star Ballot 2013: Kyrie Irving, Omri Casspi, Anderson Varejao represent Cavs

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Three Cavaliers players including point guard Kyrie Irving were named to the official NBA All-Star ballot on Tuesday.

The National Basketball Association released its official All-Star ballot on Tuesday, and as many as three Cleveland Cavaliers players were chosen as candidates to play in the 62nd annual NBA All-Star Game.

In addition to star point guard Kyrie Irving, Cleveland forwards Omri Casspi and Anderson Varejao were each nominated as possible Eastern Conference representatives. The 20-year-old Irving is one of 24 players at the guard position listed on the ballot, while Casspi and Varejao are among the 36 forwards in contention.

One new change to the league's ballot is the omission of the center position, a slot that Varejao has filled in the past and would have again this year. Instead of two guards, two forwards and one center, the starting five will be comprised of two guards and three forwards. A total of 120 players from around the league made the ballot, and the starters will be announced live on TNT on Jan. 17.
