The NBA announced Wednesday that the NBA Draft will be back at the Prudential Center for the second straight year.

The draft is scheduled for June 28, 2012, and will be televised on ESPN starting at 7 p.m.

From 2001-2010, the NBA Draft was held in New York City. Prior to that, it made stops in several cities, including Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Vancouver, Charlotte, East Rutherford, Toronto, Indianapolis, Detroit and Portland.

Last year, Kyrie Irving was taken first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Freshman Kentucky forward Anthony Davis, should he declare, is projected to be the first overall pick by several mock drafts this year.
