Timberwolves to host draft party: Free event for fans


The Timberwolves will host a draft party for fans to watch the NBA draft coverage on Thursday, June 23.

In addition to watching the live draft coverage on the arena scoreboard, the evening will include a scheduled appearance from Scott Layden, general manager of the Timberwolves, and a question and answer session with Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen.

Season ticket members will have access to a free throw shooting contest to support the Timberwolves Community Fund, with each successful free throw earning an entry to win an autographed Karl-Anthony Towns jersey.

Members will have access to the arena floor with food and beverage provided. The general public will be in the lower bowl where concessions will be available. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. in the box office lobby and draft coverage will begin at 6 p.m., with the first pick taking place around 6:30 p.m. This year the Wolves have the fifth pick in the first round. The team does not have a scheduled second round pick. Tickets are free and fans can RSVP at www.timberwolves.com/draftparty.
