The Texas Legends announced today that the team will host the annual live draft party at Strikz Entertainment in Frisco for the second consecutive year. The NBA Development League Draft will take place Sunday, October 30th.
The Legends hold the 9th pick in the Draft, which has six total rounds. Players selected in the Draft will join returning Legends, Mavericks affiliate players, players whose Draft rights are held by the Mavericks, and local tryout standouts to form the team.
The party is scheduled to begin at 12:30pm CT and the draft will begin at 1:00. Legends fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at the “War Room” as Legends’ Owner Donnie Nelson, Head Coach Bob MacKinnon, and the basketball operations staff piece together the 2016-17 roster.
Strikz is located on the West side of Preston Rd South of Lebanon Rd at 8789 Lebanon Rd in Frisco. The bowling and entertainment venue will offer food and drink specials, and fans will have the opportunity to meet Nelson and MacKinnon as well as members of the 2016-17 Legends Dance Team.
