The NBA is finalizing a plan to host the 2021 All-Star game on March 7 in Atlanta and could have the details and plans finished by Thursday, reports The Athletic’s Shams Charania. 

The NBA released the first All-Star balloting returns Thursday as well.   

In the Western conference, Suns shooting guard Devin Booker is ranked sixth in the guard vote with 173,755 total votes. 

Booker comes in one spot ahead of point guard Chris Paul, who has 128,127.

Paul has a significant lead over the eighth highest vote-getter. Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum trails Paul by 23,162 votes.  

Booker and Paul rank 17 and 18 amongst all players in the Western Conference.

Fans vote for the five starters, two guards and three frontcourt players, while coaches fill in the bench.

Nets forward Kevin Durant is currently the lead vote-getter in the Eastern Conference while Lakers forward LeBron James has the most votes in the west. 

Durant and James also have the most votes among frontcourt players, while Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal lead the guard vote in their conferences. 

Voting for the All-Star game ends on Feb. 16.
