Future NBA Draft Locations for 2024, 2025 and beyond
By Tyler Watts
The 2023 NBA Draft takes place on June 22 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and it promises to be a franchise-altering night. Victor Wembanyama, the most hyped prospect since LeBron James, will find his first NBA home. This year's class is loaded with talent, and multiple stars will enter the league.
Dallas Mavericks fans will be anxiously awaiting the lottery on May 16 to see if they can keep their first-round pick. They traded it with a top-ten protection to the New York Knicks in 2019 for Kristaps Porzingis. Dallas finished with the tenth-worst record, and they have a 79.8 percent chance to keep the selection, but crazier things have happened in the lottery. The Mavs need the pick to improve their roster this offseason, so there will be plenty of nervous moments as they await the results of the ping-pong balls.
Where can fans go to watch the NBA Draft in person? There has been no formal announcement beyond 2023, but the event appears to have a permanent home.
Where will the NBA Draft be in 2024, 2025, and beyond?
