Top Targets to Watch as OKC Thunder's Draft Lottery Representative

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be taking one representative to the NBA Draft Lottery.

The NBA Draft is quickly upon us.

In one week, the moment several franchises and fan bases have been awaiting will finally hit the big screen. Tuesday, May 17, at 7 pm CST, Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum will unveil the full order of the upcoming NBA Draft live on ESPN. And for Oklahoma City, the stakes have never been higher.

Following a bad shake in last year's lottery, the Thunder head into next Thursday armed with the fourth-best odds, carrying a 12.5% chance of the No. 1 pick, and the twelfth-best draft odds via the Los Angeles Clippers, wagering a 2.5% cut of the top choice.

All 14 franchises are to select a representative for coverage of the selection process. These choices can range anywhere from Hall of Famers, current players, and representatives of said organization.
