Default NBA to award 2014 All-Star game to New Orleans

When NBA Commissioner David Stern introduces New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson at a 2 p.m. press conference day, Stern will also announce that the league has awarded the 2014 All-Star Game to the city, a source confirmed Monday morning.

With Carnival considerations, and the 2013 All-Star Weekend already set for Houston, the next possible date New Orleans could host its second All-Star Game would be 2014.

New Orleans hosted its first NBA All-Star Game in 2008.

As part of the new lease agreement announced on March 16 between the state and the Hornets, part of the deal included a future All-Star Game.

Stern, along with Benson, Gov. Bobby Jindal and Mayor Mitch Landrieu will be making the formal announcement at the Arena.
