2024 NBA draft lottery: Teamsโ€™ on-stage representatives revealed

Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray and Portland Trail Blazers guard Scoot Henderson headline the list of individuals who will serve as team representatives for the NBA draft lottery on Sunday in Chicago, Illinois.

The 40th annual lottery (3 p.m. EDT, ABC) will determine the selection order for the first 14 picks of the draft. Drawings will be conducted to determine the first four picks and the remaining lottery teams will select in positions 5-14 in inverse order of their season records.

The Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards and Charlotte Hornets have the highest odds (14%) of winning the No. 1 pick after finishing as the three worst teams. The Trail Blazers (13.2%) and San Antonio Spurs (10.5%) have the next highest odds of landing the top pick.

The NBA draft this year is considered wide open at the top of the board with no clear-cut top choice, unlike last year when Victor Wembanyama was the consensus No. 1 pick. French prospect Alex Sarr is the front-runner to be the top pick, with others also in contention.

While Sarr is the likely top pick, Donovan Clingan, Rob Dillingham, Ron Holland II, Zaccharie Risacher and Nikola Topiฤ‡ are projected to be the next few players drafted. The draft board is still fluid and will likely change as the combine begins and players meet with teams.

With the draft lottery set to occur on Sunday, here are the individuals who will represent teams on stage at the event.
