Cavaliers to host All-Star Game at Quicken Loans Arena in 2022, report says

The NBA All-Star Game is coming back to Cleveland.

The Cavaliers will host the game in 2022, according to a report from Crain’s Cleveland Business, which cites unidentified league sources. The official announcement is expected to come as early as Thursday, the report says.

Cleveland had been in the running to host the game in 2021, but that plan was pushed back because of delays in the renovations of Quicken Loans Arena.

The game was last played in Cleveland in 1997.

The All-Star Game will be hosted by Charlotte, N.C., this season, followed by Chicago in 2020 and Indianapolis in 2021.
