The Magic will be very busy on Draft night with two first round picks in the lottery including the fourth pick. Considering the Magic’s continuing rebuild, it would be no surprise if the Magic are fairly active on Draft night.
The party starts at 6 p.m. at Amway Center on June 26 during the broadcast of the Draft. The event will include the live broadcast of the Draft airing on 740 AM The Game in Orlando, prize giveaways, Magic entertainment, appearances by Stuff and the Magic Dancers and discounts on Magic gear.
Expect a few players to show up too for the local radio broadcast of the Draft. Rob Hennigan will be around in a back room and who knows if he would address the fans in attendance.
While the media will be cooped up in the back watching the Draft and waiting for the draft picks to call in from New York, there will be lots for the fans to do to celebrate this important step in the franchise’s rebuild project.
Tickets to the event can be purchased at OrlandoMagic.com (or the link above). Season tickets will, of course, be on sale at the event as well.
Also do not forget to enter the Magic’s $100,000 Draft challenge. For those that live in the Orlando area, if you can pick all 14 picks in the lottery correctly, the Magic will give away a hundred grand as a reward. Good luck with that. I am averaging five or six picks correct in the last three or four years. It is not easy.
The Draft is June 26. We are counting down the days.
