The game matching 24 All-Stars from the NBA's Eastern and Western Conferences will take place in February 1987, one month before the NCAA Western Regionals, also to be staged at the Kingdome.

The game will be the second NBA All-Star game in Seattle. In 1974, the West beat the East 134-123 at the Coliseum.

The 1985-86 All-Star game is scheduled for Feb. 9 at Reunion Arena in Dallas.

Revelle also announced settlement of King County's suit against the Sonics for the loss of revenue to the county because of declining pro basketball attendance. The county claimed the deficit was caused by the team's launching of the now defunct cable TV SuperChannel.

Revelle and Sonics' officials did not reveal details of the settlement.
