A source confirmed that the NBA will announce on Friday that Chicago will host the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement during a press conference at the United Center. They did not release any details about the content of that announcement. He was joined by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Bulls President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Reinsdorf.

Chicago last hosted the NBA All-Star Game in 1988. The economic impact a year ago of the All-Star Game in New Orleans was upwards of $45 million, a number likely to be greater in Chicago given its deep basketball history. "I look forward to better seats next time".
