The New York Times was first to report the news.
A firm date for the televised draft has not yet been established, but January 30 or January 31 have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the plans publicly.
It will be interesting to see who will be the captains, too, since LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers, an Eastern Conference team, to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, a Western Conference team.
"We're All-Stars. Let's have a draft.' So it sounds like we're going to have a televised draft next year". According to Marc Stein and Kevin Draper of the New York Times, one thing the league has made a decision to do is make the All-Star draft a televised event. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time.
With James now in the West, there's no shot for he and Curry to both be captains again.
James also reflected on his experience picking teams alongside Golden State's Stephen Curry.
Now that we're into the 2018 season, the National Basketball Association is gearing up for the 2019 All-Star Game. This is the right way to play an All-Star game with the Western Conference just way better than the East.
