Pacers Hoping To Win Big At NBA Draft Lottery

Last updated on Tuesday, May 19, 2009

(SECAUCUS) - The NBA Draft Lottery takes place tonight at NBA TV headquarters in Secaucus, New Jersey.

For the third-straight year, the Indiana Pacers will be participating in the lottery with Team President Larry Bird expected to represent the club tonight.

The odds favor the Pacers retaining the 13th overall selection in the June draft, but they do have a six-tenths of one percent chance of landing one of the top three choices.

Indiana had the eleventh pick in last year's draft and selected Arizona Guard Jarryd Bayless.

Bayless was shipped to Portland along with Ike Diogu for the rights to Brandon Rush, who was last season's 13th pick, along with Jarrett Jack and Josh McRoberts.
