Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards will represent the team virtually at Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery.

The team made the announcement Monday, adding the lottery is set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

"I look forward to representing the Timberwolves and state of Minnesota at this year’s draft lottery," Edwards said in a statement Monday. "I remember the excitement for me during draft lottery and draft time last year and I hope to bring good luck for our fans tomorrow."

The Timberwolves are entering the draft with a 27.6% chance of landing a top-three pick that would be kept by the franchise. Ending the season with a .319 win percentage, the team has 9.0% odds to land the first pick, 9.2% for the second and 9.4% chance for the third selection, according to the team. If the pick is No. 4 or below, it goes to Golden State from the D'Angelo Russell-Andrew Wiggins trade.
