CHICAGO – For the first time in three decades, the stars of the NBA will make their way to the Windy City in February for their mid-season showcase.

According to a report by Nick Friedell of ESPN on Thursday, the Bulls will play host to the 2020 NBA All-Star Game at the United Center.

While the Bulls or NBA has yet to confirm, the team has scheduled a news conference for Friday featuring personnel from the team and the City of Chicago.

It will mark the third time that the NBA has brought the All-Star game to the West Side but the first to be played at the United Center. In 1973 and 1988, the games were played at the Chicago Stadium.
