MILWAUKEE (AP) -- With his newest good luck charm in hand, Milwaukee Bucks general manager Larry Harris is headed to the NBA draft lottery in New Jersey with hopes of bringing home the number one pick.

The team solicited lucky charms from fans through its Web site.

The winning entry was a fan's lucky stone that had been taken from the floor of the Roman Coliseum.

The fan said it had recently helped a friend recover from cancer.

Two years ago, Harris brought two good luck charms from fans - a fishing lure and a bracelet - with him to the draft lottery and the Bucks won the top pick, which they eventually used to draft center Andrew Bogut.

Milwaukee finished last season with the third-worst record in the NBA, giving them the third-best chance of landing the top pick tomorrow night.

The two most coveted players in next month's draft are Ohio State center Greg Oden and Texas forward Kevin Durant.

Harris made it fairly clear today that he would lean toward taking Oden if the Bucks get the top pick.
