NEWARK, N.J. — A person familiar with the plans says the NBA draft is moving from New York City to Newark.
The person requested anonymity because the league had yet to announce that the annual draft of college players will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark in June.
Commissioner David Stern is expected to make the announcement Wednesday night before the New Jersey Nets' season opener against the Detroit Pistons. The Nets will play their home games at the Prudential Center for the next two years before a planned move to Brooklyn, N.Y.
The draft had been held in New York City since 2001.
