According AOL Fanhouse’s Sam Amick via twitter, Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins will play in the Rookie/Sophomore game during all-star weekend.

Rookie team at All-Star weekend: E. Bledsoe, D. Cousins, D. Favors, L. Fields, B. Griffin, W. Johnson, G. Monroe, G. Neal, John Wall.

Sophomore team: T. Evans, Blair, Curry, DeRozan, Gibson, Holiday, Ibaka, Jennings and Wesley Matthews.

This is good news for Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins but disappointing news for small forward Omri Casspi who didn’t make the cut after playing in the game as a rookie last season.

I will get reaction from all players involved later today, following the Kings-Celtics match-up.
