The Thunder are tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fourth-best odds in the draft to get the first overall pick. If the Houston Rockets land outside of the top four, the Thunder will own their pick.
Mohammed had two stints with the Thunder as a player, one from 2011 to 2012 and the other during 2016.
Overall, in 92 games with the franchise, Mohammed averaged 3.7 points and 3.2 rebounds.
After his 2016 retirement, Mohammed joined the Thunder’s front office and quickly ascended to his current role of being the G League affiliate's GM.
Mohammed is one of several former Thunder players to have a front office or coaching role with the team currently. Other notable alumni being Nick Collison and Eric Maynor.
The lottery will be held at 7:30 p.m. CT, right before Game 2 of the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns Western Conference Finals on ESPN.
