The Nuggets have the worst odds (0.5 percent) to land the top selection at Tuesday night's National Basketball Association draft lottery in Chicago, which will set the order for the picks happening June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
A lottery selection didn't look to be in the cards for the Knicks early in the season.
But even more importantly than the game, there's the NBA Draft lottery.
More likely outcomes are that the Magic will obtain the fifth pick (a 26.2 percent chance) or the sixth pick (a 35.9 percent chance). Arizona big man DeAndre Ayton, Slovenian shooting guard Luka Doncic, Duke power forward Marvin Bagley III and Michigan State center Jaren Jackson Jr. are all projected as potential franchise-changers. The lottery is used to determine the top three draft spots, while slots 4-14 are assigned on reverse order of record.
Joking aside, the Los Angeles Clippers have a pretty minimal chance of getting a top-three pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Williams will sit in the room where four pingpong balls will be drawn from a lottery machine and hope the Magic win the top overall pick.
This overall core might be the best job the Celtics have ever done in using the draft to assemble a core of players, but they have one of the longest histories with some of the best draft picks of all time. They have not had the No. 1 pick since. Therefore, if we don't hear the 76ers' name called at No. 10, then it makes the top-three revealing very interesting (see below in the final category). That number would be much higher if it weren't for some bad trades made in the past.
Should the Kings stay put at No. 7, it would mark the 7th time in the lottery era where they have ended up with that selection.
Porzingis is the team's best building block right now.
