Rookie of the Year Award winner Kevin Durant will represent the Seattle SuperSonics at this year’s NBA Draft Lottery on May 20 in Secaucus, N.J., a team spokesman said Monday. The Lottery is the NBA’s annual event that determines which teams will have the draft’s top three selections as well as the remaining order of the 14 non-playoff teams. The Sonics have the second best chance to land the No. 1 overall pick in the June 26 NBA Draft, and the team is guaranteed a top five pick. Kansas State forward Michael Beasley and Memphis point guard Derrick Rose are the consensus top two picks in this year’s draft. The Sonics have a 19.9 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall pick, an 18.8 percent chance of the No. 2 pick and a 17.1 percent chance of landing the No. 3 selection. Former Sonics Vice Chairman and President of Basketball Operations Lenny Wilkens represented the team at last year’s Lottery. The Sonics entered last year’s Draft Lottery slated to select in the fifth position. They had an 8.8 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick, a 9.65 percent chance of getting the No. 2 pick and a 10.67 percent chance of receiving the third selection. The Sonics ended up with the No. 2 overall selection and chose Durant, one of last year’s two prized selections along with former Ohio State center Greg Oden, who Portland chose with the first selection. Durant averaged 20.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 80 games this season. He became the third teenager to average 20 points or more, joining Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James. Durant will be the third consecutive Rookie of the Year to represent his team at the Draft Lottery. New Orleans point guard Chris Paul represented the Hornets in 2006 and Portland’s Brandon Roy represented the Trail Blazers in 2007.
