All-Star balloting for the 2014 NBA All-Star game opened up on Friday with the Toronto Raptors being represented by four players.

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are two of 24 backcourt options for fans to vote into the East’s starting five, while Rudy Gay and Jonas Valanciunas are the other two and are competing with 34 more frontcourt options.

This marks the first time Valanciunas has been selected to the All-Star ballot. This will be Lowry’s third time appearing on the ballot, DeRozan’s fourth and Gay’s seventh.

The Raptors haven’t had an All-Star since Chris Bosh in 2010.

Fans can cast their votes daily in a variety of ways, including the official balloting website, using social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as through text messaging.

The voting will close on Jan. 21. The 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be played in New Orleans on Feb. 16.
