Ahead of the 2018 NBA All-Star weekend, the Sacramento Kings are set to announce their bid proposal to host a future NBA All-Star game.
The Kings, along with local partners at the City of Sacramento, Greater Sacramento Economic Council and Visit Sacramento, are coming together to outline the capitol city's plan in hopes of hosting the 2022 or 2023 All-Star game.
The media event will be held on Thursday Feb. 22 at 9 a.m. at the Golden 1 Center.
The city of Sacramento is just one of four league associated cities who have never hosted an All-Star game -- Oklahoma City, Memphis, and Portland are the others.
Kings owner and chairman Vivek Ranadivé feels the opening of the Golden 1 Center in 2016 has sparked the city.
"Golden 1 Center has been a great spark for the city and building on that momentum we have assembled an unprecedented plan to host a global celebration of basketball at the All-Star in Sacramento,” said Ranadivé in a statement. “We are looking forward to sharing the details of our bid on Thursday and presenting to the NBA on Friday."
