CHARLOTTE, N.C. – After a repeal of the controversial House Bill 2 was passed by North Carolina lawmakers in March, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Charlotte will be eligible to host the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

Silver made the announcement during the league's Board of Governors press conference Friday.

“This is not an easy decision,” said Silver. “The most recent change in the law does not mean the fundamental issues are resolved. But after considering all points of view, we have concluded that Charlotte will be eligible to host the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.”

Charlotte was initially slated to host the 2017 All-Star Game, but the league relocated the All-Star weekend to New Orleans over HB2. Silver said that Charlotte has deep roots within the NBA, and is hopeful that changed attitudes will lead to a national effort toward protecting LGBT citizens.

Guaranteed on the premise that HB2 was repealed. It was partially repealed, but some language in HB142 remains carried over from HB2. It is not a certainty that the NCAA will even come back here with HB142, let alone the All-Star Game.
