The NBA reached an agreement with the NBA Players Association to broadcast the 2019 All-Star draft, the New York Times' Marc Stein and Kevin Draper reported Wednesday.
The league has yet to finalize a date for the event, "but Jan. 30 or Jan. 31 have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast."
Last year was the first time the NBA used a draft process to fill out the All-Star squads. LeBron James and Stephen Curry selected their teams from the All-Star pool, the results of which came from traditional conference-based voting and coaches' selections.
After holding the draft behind closed doors, James and Curry agreed the spectacle deserved to be televised.
