Tomorrow at the NBA 2021 Draft Lottery, the Cleveland Cavaliers will be represented by GM Koby Altman. The team announced Altman’s role in the night in a press release sent out on Monday evening.

The draft lottery is a key moment for the Cavs this offseason. It’s going to determine what kind of player they can potentially nab in the 2021 NBA Draft. The rot lottery draw is the difference between Cade Cunningham at No. 1, an Evan Mobley or Jalen Green at No. 2 or someone still interesting, but maybe not as impactful, any lower.

Other team representatives include Ben Wallace for the Pistons, Anthony Edward for the Timberwolves and Miles Bridges for the Hornets. The lottery airs beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST on ESPN tomorrow. Cleveland can pick no lower than ninth and have the fifth-best odds of pick No. 1 overall. The draft itself is scheduled for Thursday, July 29.
