NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA Store on Fifth Avenue will close Sunday and the league says a new location in New York will open soon.
The league also says Friday it is in discussions to open a temporary location in the city.
The NBA Store opened Sept. 18, 1998. The league announced in November that it would close sometime in February, but hadn't specified a date.
