After a successful inaugural season in 2017, the BIG3 — a 3-on-3 basketball league comprised of former NBA players founded by Ice Cube — will return for its second season in the summer of 2018.

So far 22 players, captains, co-captains and coaches have agreed to return and have roster spots, while 25 players from last season will join the BIG3 Draft Pool, from which the remaining rosters spots will be filled.

A new addition this season is a second co-captain spot for each team, which have already been filled by some prominent ex-NBA players. Four co-captain spots remain, and we’ll continue to update this list as more players sign on.
