    The party will begin at 7:00pm with drink specials, game specials and giveaways. The draft itself will begin at 8:00 pm. Live coverage of the proceedings will be aired on NBA TV throughout the venue. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants will begin their selection process with the seventh overall pick in the draft.

    The event will feature special appearances by our mascot and our dance team, the Madame Ants. You will also get a chance to meet and hear from Head Coach Kent Davison, Assistant Coach Jaren Jackson, and team President and General Manager Jeff Potter.
