With the 14th and final pick in the 2014 Rising Stars Challenge Draft, Team Webber captain Chris Webber selected Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo.

The NBA previously named Oladipo as one of 18 rookies and sophomores to take part in the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star Weekend, but he didn't know for and with whom he'd be playing until Thursday's Draft between Webber and Team Hill captain Grant Hill. Following Oladipo's selection, the remaining four players in the pool were assigned to teams via a blind draw.

Oladipo was the second-to-last guard selected, trailing Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams, New York Knicks swingman Tim Hardaway Jr., and Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke.

The second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Oladipo is averaging 13.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.6 steals.

Oladipo's Team Webber teammates are New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis, Carter-Williams, Burke, Hardaway Jr., Boston Celtics center Jared Sullinger, Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee, Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, and Boston big man Kelly Olynyk.

That group will face off against Team Hill, whose members are Lillard, Beal, Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond, Golden State Warriors forward Harrison Barnes, Houston Rockets power forward Terrence Jones, Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valančiūnas, Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters, and Atlanta Hawks center Pero Antić.

The 2014 Rising Stars Challenge tips off at 9 PM on February 14th.
