MSG Networks today announced it will telecast a live NBA Draft show at 11:00pm ET on Thursday night, serving as the go-to destination for complete Knicks draft coverage.
The “Knicks Draft Special, presented by Michelob Ultra,” hosted by Bill Pidto with Knicks analysts Alan Hahn and Wally Szczerbiak, will feature real-time updates, expert draft analysis and initial reaction to the Knicks’ selections. Szczerbiak will join Pidto in studio, with Hahn reporting live from the draft in Brooklyn.
The one-hour special airing on MSG Network will include in-depth breakdowns of the play for each of the Knicks’ draft picks and their potential impact on the team. The Knicks’ eventual first round selection is also expected to join the show for a live interview.
Following the draft, MSG Networks will have additional draft coverage on Friday night’s episode of MSG PM at 11:00pm ET. Former Knicks forward John Wallace and former lottery pick and eight-year NBA veteran center John Henson will join hosts Kazeem Famuyide and Monica McNutt to recap the draft and deliver insightful analysis around each of the Knicks’ picks.
The draft programming each night will also be available on MSG GO, the network’s live streaming and video on demand platform.
