Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca said it is “appropriate” that the NBA review the status of the league’s 2017 All-Star Game.

The group leading the bid to bring the 2024 Olympics to Boston is shaking up its management. Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca is taking over the bid committee, replacing construction magnate John Fish. The group is trying to revive its chances of bringing the Summer Games to the city after early stumbles left the USOC second-guessing its decision to pick Boston as the American bid city. The USOC would have to submit a formal bid to the IOC in September. The host nation will be picked in 2017. Boston is expected to compete against Rome; Paris; Hamburg, Germany; and Budapest, Hungary.
