Byron Scott to represent Lakers at draft lottery

Will he uncross his arms to celebrate if the Lakers get the first overall pick?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak divulged that head coach Byron Scott would represent the team at the draft lottery on Fred Roggin's radio show this morning (as captured by Pro Basketball Talk). Fans will need to hope Scott is the team's lucky charm, because as has been much discussed this year, the Lakers will lose their pick to Philadelphia if it does not stay within the top five.

Reaction on "Lakers Twitter" was less than positive:

For the Lakers sake, hopefully Scott is better at winning lotteries than he was at winning games this year.
