NEW YORK -- The NBA draft will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., for the second straight year.

With Madison Square Garden again unavailable while undergoing offseason renovations, the draft will return to what no longer will be an NBA arena. The Nets will play their final game there in April before moving to Brooklyn.

Commissioner David Stern calls the Prudential Center a "state-of-the-art" facility.

The draft is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 28.
