Steve Nash and Jason Kidd are planning to stage a star-studded Dec. 10 charity game at University of California-Berkeley, Kidd’s college, to benefit each player’s youth foundation.

“Excited to go back to the Bay Area with Jason to play for the fans and raise money for the children our foundations benefit,” Nash said. “We go way back to college so to see the distance we’ve both come and to take it back to those days will be a lot of fun and for a good cause.”

Yahoo! writer Marc Spears tweeted today that the rosters will include Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, Stephen Curry, David Lee, DeMar DeRozan, Corey Maggette, Trevor Ariza, Ricky Rubio, Shawn Marion, Michael Beasley and likely Amar’e Stoudemire and Kevin Durant.
