We're In For Pizza At Legends Draft Party

Are you needing some hoops action? Having withdrawal pains? Want a chance to cheer on the locals and see them at work? While the NBA and the Mavs sit, the Texas Legends are launching. And we're all invited to the team's draft party this week. Admission is FREE. Here are the details of your opportunity to get a glimpse behind the scenes, and have some food and fun, too.



The Texas Legends will hold a draft party on Thursday, November 3 at the Pizza Hut located at 9550 Dallas Parkway in Frisco. Fans will experience a live "draft room" as co-owner Donnie Nelson, exec Spud Webb and coach Del Harris, will make their selections in the 2011 NBA Developmental League Draft starting at 6 p.m.

"The draft is one of the most exciting moments in sports, you never know what kind of gem you will land, or potential trades will arise," Legends owner Donnie Nelson said. "We just wanted to open the doors to a unique experience and let the fans be a part of it."

Admission and parking at the Pizza Hut in Frisco will be FREE.

Pizza Hut is offering Legends fans who attend the draft $3 Margaritas, $1 draft beers, and $10 pizzas.
