NBA superstar and childhood pal Kevin Durant has been added to Michael Beasley's All-Star Classic next week at Osseo High School, organizers say.

The two have known each other since grade school and have played in exhibition games together all over the country during this locked-out off season.

Durant joins a list of players expected for that Oct. 21 game that also includes Beasley, Kevin Love, John Wall,  Joakim Noah, DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Williams,  Wes Johnson, Jeff Green, DeAndre Jordan, Sam Young, Greg Monroe and Martell Webster.

Capacity for the 7 p.m. game is 2,600. Tickets priced at $60, $120 and $300 are available only at the gym, cash only starting at noon that day.
