Two people with knowledge of the plans say the 2015 All-Star weekend will be split between two New York arenas, with Madison Square Garden to host the game. Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the Saturday skills events, the people confirmed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the plans were to be announced at a news conference Wednesday.

The league has been working with the Knicks and Nets for months on the plan to split the events.
