The NBA announced the representatives for the 2018 NBA draft lottery Monday. Those hoping for eye-popping names likely will be disappointed.

Aside from Nick Gilbert, the son of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, all representatives are either a player or employee of the team.

Here is a list of every team’s rep:

Atlanta Hawks: Jami Gertz (owner)

Boston Celtics: Rich Gotham (president)

Charlotte Hornets: Mitch Kupchak (president of basketball operations)

Chicago Bulls: Michael Reinsdorf (president and chief operating officer)

Cleveland Cavaliers: Nick Gilbert (son of team owner)

Dallas Mavericks: Michael Finley (assistant vice principal of basketball operations)

Denver Nuggets: Jamal Murray (player)

Detroit Pistons: Luke Kennard (player)

Los Angeles Clippers: Jerry West (team consultant)

Memphis Grizzlies: Elliot Perry (minority owner)

New York Knicks: Scott Perry (general manager)

Orlando Magic: Jeff Weltman (president of basketball operations)

Philadelphia 76ers: Elton Brand (general manager of Delaware Blue Coats)

Phoenix Suns: Josh Jackson (player)

Sacramento Kings: De’Aaron Fox (player)

ESPN will air the lottery in an hour-long program Tuesday night before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The Celtics won the lottery last year and then traded back two spots to No. 3, with the Sixers moving up to take Markelle Fultz. Both teams will be represented in the lottery Tuesday despite making the playoffs, as the Los Angeles Lakers owe their first-round pick to either Boston or Philadelphia depending on where it falls.

The Suns have a 25 percent chance of winning the lottery, the highest odds of any team, after going 21-61 during the regular season.
