Silver: Change in NC law needed for All-Star in Charlotte (Yahoo Sports)

Commissioner Adam Silver believes the NBA has been ''crystal clear'' that the 2017 All-Star Game only stays in Charlotte if a North Carolina law goes. Political and business leaders he's spoken with in the state believe it will, so he's holding off for now on setting any deadlines for when the NBA might act. Silver said last week that the law that limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people was ''problematic'' for the league, but he believed dialogue was more useful than ultimatums at this point, so has continued discussions with North Carolina officials.
