UTAH FLASH HOST DRAFT PARTY
2010 NBA Development League Draft set for Monday Nov. 1
PROVO, Utah, Oct. 26, 2010 – The Utah Flash are hosting their annual NBA Development League Draft party at Noah’s in Lindon on Monday, Nov. 1 beginning at 5 p.m. MT.
Noah’s, which also serves as a practice facility for the Utah Flash Dance Team, is located at 644 North 2000 West on the East side of I-15 at exit 275 in Pleasant Grove.
The draft is eight rounds and will be conducted via conference call from NBA D-League draft headquarters and at locations in each of the 16 league cities. The ninth-annual event will be streamed on-line (www.nba.com/dleague) beginning at 5 p.m.
The Flash have the eighth selection in the first round and the ninth pick in the second round of the serpentine draft. The unique draft format allows a team who has the last pick in the first round to have the first pick in the following round. The Reno Bighorns have the first overall selection.
Flash fans will be allowed to observe the “war room” where coaches and basketball operations personnel make the final decisions in drafting players. Fans will also be able to purchase Flash merchandise as well as season ticket and group ticket packages.
Flash head coach Kevin Young will provide in-house commentary on draft picks for fans, giving insight into the thought process behind the player selections. Flash fans will also have a chance to meet the newest addition to the Flash coaching staff, Gene Cross.
Season and group tickets remain on sale and can be purchased by calling 801-434-HOOP. The Flash opens its season at Reno on Nov. 20, with the home opener slated for Dec. 3 against the Austin Toros.
