CLEVELAND– The NBA is expected to name Cleveland the host city for a future All-Star Game, Crain’s Cleveland Business reported on Tuesday.
The formal announcement could come on Thursday, Crain’s said. The city will likely land the 2022 game.
Cleveland was a contender for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game, but the league opted for Indianapolis. Charlotte and Chicago will host the 2019 and 2020 games, respectively.
The 24-year-old arena was closed this summer as crews got to work on the project that’s expected to wrap up in mid-2019.
