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.

In addition to Westbrook, other active players representing their teams will be Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Hornets), Nerlens Noel (76ers) and Alex Len (Suns).

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 rest of the list includes Knicks GM Steve Mills, Magic CEO Alex Martins, Pistons GM Jeff Bower, Nuggets president Josh Kroenke and Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey. 

The lottery drawing itself will take place just prior to ESPN's 8:30 ET broadcast.

Last season, Cleveland won the lottery for the second straight year and third time in four seasons, and selected Andrew Wiggins, who was later dealt to Minnesota as part of a package for Kevin Love.
