CHICAGO (AP) — The NBA says it will hold its draft lottery in Chicago next spring.

The league announced Thursday (Friday, PHL time) the event will be held outside of New York or New Jersey for the first time on May 15 (May 16, PHL time). It will be followed by the draft combine May 16-20 (May 17-21, PHL time) in Chicago, where it has been conducted for years.

The NBA is in a way following the lead of the NFL and NHL, which have both held drafts in Chicago in recent years.
