Westbrook, Bird among NBA Draft Lottery's on-stage representatives
The NBA announced its list of on-stage team representatives for the upcoming Draft Lottery on Thursday.
Scoring champ Russell Westbrook (Thunder) and front-office execs Larry Bird (Pacers), Alonzo Mourning (Heat) and Vlade Divac (Kings) are among some of the big names slated to take their teams' respective daises as the NBA reveals the order of its first 14 draft selections Tuesday, May 19 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The Timberwolves, who hold the lottery's highest odds at 25%, will be repped by Glen Taylor, the only owner to stand in on behalf of his team.
The Lakers' Byron Scott will be the only coach to act as a representative.
The lottery drawing itself will take place just prior to ESPN's 8:30 ET broadcast.
