CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Cavaliers’ bid to host the 2020 or 2021 NBA All-Star game and accompanying week of events will fail if construction on upgrades at Quicken Loans Arena are not underway by Sept. 15, says a letter from the NBA.

There is no immediate precise timetable for the promotion, though Gilbert told beat writers about 10 days ago that he needed a week or so to finalize the front office. ESPN reported that Altman’s promotion was “imminent.”
