It took a few weeks, but Domantas Sabonis has cracked the top 10 of fan voting for the 2024 NBA All-Star Game.

On Thursday, the NBA released the latest fan voting, and the Kings center knocked out Karl-Anthony Towns of the top 10. Guard De’Aaron Fox moved up a spot in fan voting, coming in at seventh.

Domantas Sabonis is averaging 20.1 points, 12.7 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game on 61.4 percent shooting. That’s a career-high in rebounds and assists. Not to mention, he’s leading the entire NBA in rebounds, and double-doubles, and is second in the league in triple-doubles.

Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20 and there is one more 3-for-1 voting day, on Friday, Jan. 19.

How NBA All-Star Game voting works

Fans, who can vote once a day on the NBA app or on NBA.com, account for 50% of the vote, with current players and a media panel accounting for 25% each.

TNT will reveal the All-Star game starters on Thursday, Jan. 25. The reserves, who are selected by NBA coaches, are announced a week later on Thursday, Feb. 1.
