No word yet on ticket prices. Last season, tickets started at $20 each and were available online at nbatickets.com and at the American Express box office at the Brooklyn arena.
With the Nets, Knicks and 76ers all have multiple picks, the arena should be full. Expect a large contingent from Boston as well. In the past, as many as 11,000 fans attended the event. It will be broadcast on ESPN and NBA TV live.
In addition to be the fifth straight year the Draft will be held in Brooklyn, it will be the seventh straight year it’s been held at the Nets home arena. In 2011 and 2012, it was held at Prudential Center in Newark.
