There has been a desire by the ACC to bring their post season tournament to New York City and it looks like that will be the case.
Pete Thamel of SI.com is reporting that the ACC has finalized a multiyear agreement with the Barclays Center to stage the ACC Tournament in that facility.

The ACC Tournament is a tradition rich event that is a perfect fit when staged on Tabacco Road. Only a handful of times has the ACC Tournament moved out of the North Carolina borders.
New York City has been on the radar screen within the conference since Syracuse, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh joined.
Details remain like scheduling conflicts with the Atlantic 10 Conference should the ACC agree to begin in 2017, it's remaining open date.
