The NBA Draft Lottery is on Tuesday night and the Sixers will learn the fate of their first-round pick via the Lakers at that time. This pick has been in the cards for a while now since Sam Hinkie traded Michael Carter-Williams to Milwaukee during the 2014-15 season. The selection is most likely going to land at No. 10 and in addition to that, the Sixers own their pick at No. 26.
Now for the exciting reveal of who will be representing the Sixers at the NBA Draft Lottery. Last year, it was Joel Embiid, in 2016 it was Brett Brown and 2015 was Nerlens Noel. This year, according to Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice, it will be former Philadelphia 76ers forward and current Delaware Blue Coats General Manager, Elton Brand.

Brand, 39, played in Philadelphia from 2008-12 and returned to the team for a part of the 2015-16 season, primarily to serve as a mentor for the organization's young core. Brand announced his retirement (for the second time) prior to the 2016 season and was named a player development consultant for the Sixers. The organization gave Brand the GM reigns for their G-League affiliate, formerly the 87ers, in August 2017.
