New Orleans gets 2014 NBA All-Star Game

Posted:

The NBA is awarding New Orleans the 2014 All-Star game, now that Tom Benson has agreed to buy the Hornets and sign a lease extension at New Orleans Arena.

Commissioner David Stern had already pledged that the Big Easy would get a midseason showcase game once a new owner and lease extension were in place.

The two sides announced an agreement on the sale Friday.
