Danny Granger is pushing Larry Legend aside in hopes of giving the Indiana Pacers better luck in Tuesday’s NBA draft lottery.
Team president Larry Bird, who will be on hand at the lottery, represented the Pacers on stage the past three years. They failed to move up each time. Granger will be on camera Tuesday (8 p.m., ESPN).
The Pacers have a 1.1 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick, which is expected to be Kentucky’s John Wall. They have a 1.3 percent chance of moving up to No. 2 and a 1.57 percent chance of jumping up to No. 3. If the lottery positions hold, the Pacers will pick 10th in the June 24 draft.
