NBA Draft Lottery Odds

NBA Draft Lottery Odds

The NBA holds its draft lottery at 8 p.m. ESPN broadcasts. The fourteen NBA teams, save for the Knicks, that missed the playoffs hope luck, and a ping-pong ball, bounces their way and they land a top-three pick. After establishing the draft order for the first three selectors, the process reverts to traditional reverse win-loss order. A few teams, particularly Denver and Orlando, may not land the pick they appear to land based on complicated trade contingencies. That said, here are the chances of the fourteen lottery teams landing the top pick.

1. Milwaukee Bucks 25.0%
2. Philadelphia 76ers 19.9%
3. Orlando Magic 15.6%
4. Utah Jazz 10.4%
5. Boston Celtics 10.3%
6. Los Angeles Lakers 6.3%
7. Sacramento Kings 4.3%
8. Detroit Pistons 2.8%
9. Cleveland Cavaliers 1.7%
10. New Orleans Pelicans 1.1%
11. Denver Nuggets 0.8%
12. New York Knicks (Denver owns pick via Carmelo Anthony trade) 0.7%
13. Minnesota Timberwolves 0.6%
14. Phoenix Suns 0.5%
