The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club is inviting fans to tip off the 2015-16 season at the team’s draft party, allowing attendees at Philips Arena to watch the opening round of the NBA Draft on June 25 with fellow supporters. Fresh off a record-breaking 60-win season and the organization’s first Eastern Conference Finals appearance, Atlanta owns the No. 15 pick in the draft’s first round, scheduled to air beginning at 7:00 p.m.
The party, co-hosted by Hawks radio and television announcers Steve Holman and Bob Rathbun, will feature appearances by Hawks guard Kent Bazemore, Hawks alumni, Harry the Hawk and team cheerleaders, as well as a complimentary photo booth located on the arena floor. The team’s radio flagship, WZGC-FM 92.9 The Game, will be on-site with a live broadcast and draft analysis.
All Hawks fans are welcome to attend and are encouraged to register in advance on Hawks.com. An RSVP guarantees express entry and allows fans to participate in a “select-a-seat” event to view available season ticket locations for the 2015-16 season. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase at select concession stands in the arena.
In addition to the first round selection, the Hawks own picks No. 50 and No. 59 later in the draft.
Doors are scheduled to open at 6:00 p.m.
