The NBA draft is still a month away but the NBA draft lottery is on Tuesday night and after 10 years the Atlanta Hawks are back in the fold for one of the league’s top 14 picks.

The Hawks and Budweiser are collaborating with STATS Brewpub to host the affair that will begin at 6:30 p.m. with draft coverage starting at 7 p.m. on ESPN. The draft lottery will take place in Chicago at the Palmer House Hilton.

The event will feature Atlanta Hawks cheerleaders, Harry the Hawk, the Flight Crew and a DJ. Prizes will also be distributed to guests.

Along with Atlanta’s lottery pick the Hawks also have three other picks, two of which are also in the first round (19th and 30th, the 33rd pick is early in the second round).

STATS is located at 300 Marietta Street SW in downtown Atlanta.
