Boston Celtics Top 15 Draft Picks of All Time

Elton Brand, Sixers Hope To Land Top Pick In NBA Draft Lottery Again

The team with the highest lottery odds is guaranteed at top four pick and the team with the lowest odds will end up with the 14th pick unless it gets one of the top three picks.

For example, if the New York Knicks are shown at No. 9 followed by the Sacramento Kings at No. 8, then you know that (a) the Kings got the raw end of the lottery deal and (b) the Cleveland Cavaliers moved into the top three of the National Basketball Association draft. But for the Magic, a team that desperately needs a talent infusion, nabbing a top-three pick this year would be crucial.

Due to a trade with the Boston Celtics previous year to move up two spots in the draft in order to land Markelle Fultz at No. 1, Philadelphia could miss out on the Los Angeles pick if it happens to fall between 2-5.

Because Orlando finished with the NBA's fifth-worst record, it will have an 8.8 percent chance of winning the lottery, a 9.6 percent likelihood of receiving the second pick and 10.7 percent odds of picking third.

Trump's announcement drew sharp criticism from a Democratic lawmaker, who said the move was jeopardizing USA national security. Prior to announcing his run for president, meanwhile, Trump frequently tweeted about China stealing United States jobs.

Anyway, since the Kings are bad and tanking next season would accomplish nothing, they desperately need to strike gold in this year's draft. The others: Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. Down 1-0 to the Celtics, they absolutely can not lose Game 2 tonight.

When the NBA Draft Lottery, aka the way the NBA can dictate who ends up with top players in the draft (wink, wink), goes down on Tuesday night, one team will bring a face from the past with them as they hope for a lucky bounce of a ping pong ball.

The Los Angeles Clippers own both their own and the Detroit Pistons' 2018 first-round pick. 2 or 3, it will go to the Boston Celtics.

The likely spot for the Magic to land is either No. 5 or No. 6.
