Barclays Center to host NBA draft

The NBA draft will remain in Brooklyn for at least another year.

The league announced Tuesday that the June 25 draft will be held at Barclays Center, home of the Nets. It is the third straight year that the draft will take place in Brooklyn.

The draft lottery will take place in New York on May 19. The Minnesota Timberwolves have the highest chance of winning the lottery and getting the No. 1 overall pick, followed by the New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers.

Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns, Duke center Jahlil Okafor, Ohio State point guard D'Angelo Russell and point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, who played this past season in China rather than attending college, are widely considered the top four prospects in the draft.
