In order to gain entrance to the party fans will be required to purchase a buffet which includes the salad bar, pizza, chicken, soup, several dessert options and a beverage.
The Reno Bighorns will have the first overall pick in a serpentine selection process, followed by the New Mexico Thunderbirds, Maine Red Claws, Texas Legends, Springfield Armor, Iowa Energy, Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Utah Flash, Dakota Wizards, Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Sioux Falls Skyforce, Bakersfield Jam, Tulsa 66ers, Austin Toros, Erie BayHawks and Idaho Stampede.
The draft is "serpentine" or "snaked" which means the order will be reversed in each of the eight rounds. For example, after picking first, Reno's next selection will be 32nd overall. Idaho will select last in the first round, but first in the second round, giving them the 16th and 17th picks overall.
