It looks like the NBA Draft has found a home and it's in Brooklyn.

Tim Bontemps reports that the June 25 NBA Draft will be held for the third straight year in Barclays Center.  It is also the fifth straight time the Nets organization will host the event. Prudential Center, where the Nets played their last two years in New Jersey, host the draft in 2011 and 2012.

The draft was held at Madison Square Garden annually from 2001 through 2010 before it moved to New Jersey while the Garden was under renovation.  But even with the renovation complete, the Draft has stayed under Nets sponsorship.

Barclays is likely to be filled with Knick fans since they are guaranteed a top five pick following theit 17-win season. The Draft Lottery will be held May 19.  The Nets hold the 29th and 41st picks.  Last year, tickets to the Draft were priced at $15, $25 and $35 and went on sale in late May.
