The 2017 NBA All-Star Game is moving... again.
The annual basketball exhibition game will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana after it was moved from North Carolina last month, the Associated Press reported Friday afternoon.
The relocation comes after the league decided the Charlotte Hornets would be an unfit host in light of North Carolina's controversial transgender bathroom bill, HB2, which prevents cities from enacting LGBT protections.
In a statement, the NBA defends its decision to relocate.
"While we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state, and country in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2."
