Ewing, Horace Grant and Nick Gilbert will all be on hand for the lottery.
The highly anticipated NBA Draft Lottery, aka the Zion Williamson lotto, is set to take place next Tuesday, May 14 at 8:30pm ET, airing on ESPN. With just days remaining before the potential franchise-altering lottery, the NBA has today revealed the 14 representatives who will participate in the lottery in Chicago.
Notable reps include New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing, Miami Heat VP of player programs Alonzo Mourning, former Chicago Bulls forward Horace Grant and the good luck charm himself, Nick Gilbert, son of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. In addition to former players like Ewing, Mourning and Grant, the 2018 #1 overall pick DeAndre Ayton will be representing the Phoenix Suns and Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma will be on hand for the Lakers.
In addition to the reps on stage during the broadcast, each team will also be sending someone to be in the actual lottery room when the ping pong balls are drawn. Check out both lists below.
The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns will all have 14% chance of securing the #1 overall pick on May 14, as well as a 52.1% chance of landing in the Top-4. Because the Knicks had the worst record in the league, they can fall no further than fifth in the draft. The Cavs, who won a tiebreaker against the Suns, can fall no further than sixth and the Suns are guaranteed to pick within the top 7.
