The 76ers will send rookie point guard Jrue Holiday to represent the team at the NBA Draft Lottery, scheduled for May 18.

The Sixers hold a 5.3 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft -- their draft position will be determined at the lottery held in Secaucus, N.J. If odds hold, the Sixers will receive the No. 6 pick in the draft, but they have an outside chance to land spots 1 through 3.

Holiday had a strong rookie season in 2009-10 and seems to have been chosen as the team's point guard of the future.
