This is expected to have a huge financial impact on the city.

Quicken Loans Arena is in the middle of renovations. Construction is scheduled to be completed during the 2019 offseason.

New Orleans brought in an estimated $45 million when it hosted the weekend in 2017, according to a report from Louisiana State University. The report revealed visitors accounted for half of that amount.

The announcement came from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Cleveland Cavaliers owner, Dan Gilbert.

Cleveland is also the host city for the 2019 MLB All-Star game.
