Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens are going to be teammates again, but only on the basketball court.

The former Eagles quarterback-receiver tandem are teaming up for the new season of Spike TV’s “Pros vs. Joes." The episode features NFL players that played college basketball against former NBA stars. McNabb (Syracuse), Owens (Tennessee-Chattanooga) and Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (Kent St.) will face Hakeem Olajuwon, Kenny Smith and Rick Fox.

The series premieres on July 14. Production begins March 9, with McNabb and Owens taping their episode this Friday in Los Angeles.

T.O. helped McNabb and the Eagles reach the Super Bowl in 2004, but a feud ended their relationship and Owens was cut midway through the 2005 season.

Owens, a free agent after playing for Buffalo last season, recently said that he and McNabb had patched things up and were friends again. That is, until Owens complains that McNabb is favoring Gates on the hard court.
