Jay Z to be one of 14 Nets reps at NBA Draft tonight

This year’s NBA draft lottery will have something extra for sports fans, as rap mogul Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter will be on hand to represent the New Jersey Nets. Jay-Z will be one of 14 Nets representatives that will be seated on the stage when NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver announces the winning order of teams participating in the draft lottery tonight (May 20). As the lottery approaches, Carter is hoping for a good night for the Nets. “This is very exciting and I hope my nickname ‘Lucky Lefty’ holds up,” said the former Def Jam Recordings president. The NBA draft lottery will air live from 8 – 8:30 p.m. Tuesday (May 20) on ESPN. The event, which is slated to take place at the NBA Entertainment studios in Secaucus, NJ., will be held before Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons.
