it's expected to be the best draft in a decade, perhaps since the 2003 Draft that produced LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony in the first round and Mo Williams and Kyle Korver in the second.

In its monthly report to the Brooklyn community on what to expect at Barclays Center, management says it anticipates a crowd of 10,000 or double last year's attendance, at the June 26 event. The Draft Lottery to determine draft order will be held Tuesday night during during pregame of Game 2 between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. The game and lottery will be shown on ESPN. The game starts at 8:30 p.m.

Draft tickets, priced at $15, $25 and $35, go on sale Tuesday to those preferred customers, including season ticket holders and subscribers to Nets news, then Wednesday to the general public through Ticketmaster and the Nets box office at Barclays Center.
