Morrow currently plays for New Jersey and was not a memberof the 2006-07 Warriors playoff team. Llorando said Jamal Crawford, GilbertArenas and Ike Diogu none of whom played for the 2007 playoff team or playfor the current team could participate as a way of filling out each roster toseven or eight players.

Llorando said that Curry is helping secure Monta Ellis andDavid Lee for the game, and that Barnes is helping work on Baron Davis, StephenJackson and Al Harrington. On Wednesday, Barnes promised on Twitterthe game would take place. Since last night, weve gotten a VERY positive responseabout this game, so we will make it happened ... Appreciate the support.
