Should the NBA rotate draft locations?

Also on a side note, the lockout postponed the NBA Draft by a week this year which might allow me to do a super nerdy week long trip: Vegas for the NHL Awards, Pittsburgh for the NHL Draft, and New York for the NBA Draft.
No real downside in rotating the drafts, but I just wonder how much of a demand there would be in some of the cities. Staples Center would be a decent location since you have two NBA teams operating there along (and a lot of transplant fans) with the easy Hollywood tie ins.
I've missed the last couple of NBA Drafts, but in the past it wasn't uncommon for a draftee (usually a foreign player) to not be present. With the NHL Draft, we at least get some instant gratification of the first rounder putting on the jersey and smiling for the camera. But I suppose they could start requiring that the top ~45 guys show up.
