There's a party in SLC happening Thursday night! The NBA Draft is LIVE Thursday and the Utah Jazz have THREE picks in the first round. Utah Jazz owner, Ryan Smith announced last week that the Delta Center will be open to view the NBA draft on the Jumbotron! There will also be free hotdogs for the first 10,000 fans! Does this mean a big trade will be coming for the Jazz? I guess we'll find out Thursday night!

I'll be there inside the Delta Center reporting live, as well!

The Jazz are looking to make some noise in the draft after missing the playoffs for the first year in a while, this last season.

This will also be the first time that fans have stepped inside the Delta Center since the building changed it's name in 2006.

If you're a fan on the Jazz or NBA basketball, the NBA Draft should be exciting tomorrow. You can catch the entire NBA Draft on ESPN Thursday night!

On this new streaming service, you'll get Jazz games, behind the scenes action, as well as stories about players, coaches, and Utah Jazz staff. There is still no word on the price of how much this streaming service will cost, but you will no longer be required to pay for Dish Network, Direct TV, Full Cable, FuboTV, or anything!

This will save Jazz fans HUNDREDS or THOUSANDS of dollars per season!

All of this will drop in the fall, just in time for the 2023-2024 Utah Jazz season!
