HOLLYWOOD — Hilary Duff, Ashanti and Usher are the musical headliners for “NBA All-Star Read to Achieve Celebration,” a one-hour special to air on 12 broadcast and cable networks, including ABC, TNT, BET and the Disney Channel.

“NBA Inside Stuff” host and executive producer Ahmad Rashad and Summer Sanders will co-host the spec from the Los Angeles Convention Center on Feb. 14, the weekend of the NBA All-Star Game.
