If the NBA does have a HORSE competition, Zion Williamson might be one of its participants. Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is exploring the possibility of staging a HORSE tournament between top players, and some big names are being floated as possible participants.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, top names such as Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and Zion Williamson have been mentioned as possible competitors. The recently retired Dwyane Wade has been considered as well.

The event remains in the planning stages, and nothing is final. It’s an effort to provide some form of entertainment during the league’s shutdown, and these are definitely top players worth watching. However, there are a lot of logistical hurdles to clear in this endeavor before it becomes a reality.
