The Thunder announced Tuesday that one lucky fan will have the opportunity to attend the annual NBA Draft Lottery on May 19 when the league determines the draft order of the 14 non-playoff teams.
The Thunder has launched a Draft Lottery Challenge, asking fans 18 and older who are Oklahoma residents to submit a fun, creative, witty and entertaining SEVEN-word essay to Thunder.nba.com explaining why they should win the trip to the lottery.
The top three finalists will be placed on thunder.nba.com and all site visitors will be able to vote on the most creative entry. The Grand Prize winner will win round trip airfare from Oklahoma City to New York City, hotel accommodations, per diem for the trip and will head to the Draft Lottery at the NBA Entertainment studious in Secaucus, N.J.
Deadline for entries on thunder.nba.com is midnight on Monday, May 4. The team is asking fans to refrain from using draft eligible player names, numbers and schools. The winning entry will be announced on Thursday, May 7 at thunder.nba.com.
