How does the NBA Draft Lottery work?

Eight players who might fit the Cavs at No. 8

The Suns enter the lottery with the best odds of landing the No. 1 pick at 25 percent. The NBA Draft isn't until Thursday, June 21 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The order of pick Nos.

Doug Franz of 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's Doug & Wolf broke down the NBA Draft Lottery for the Phoenix Suns.

The Celtics swung a 2017 draft night trade with the Philadelphia 76ers that not only netted them Jayson Tatum, but also set them up to receive the Los Angeles Lakers' 2018 first-round pick if it falls between No. 2 and No. 5.

Lois Lane actress dies
Kidder had struggled with bipolar disorder during her life, which was the cause for a highly-publicized manic episode in 1996. She was married and divorced three times and is survived by her only child, daughter Maggie, and three children.

So Williams and the Magic can use all the luck they can get their hands on Tuesday. But there's still good news for the Celtics if that happens, as Boston would get the Sacramento Kings' first-round selection in 2019, as long as it's not the No. 1 overall pick. In the three lotteries since, Orlando received the fifth, 11th and fifth picks. Since then, their lottery picks have consisted of a mixed bag of Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, Domantas Sabonis and Jonathan Isaac.

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).

With such high stakes, the lottery often inspires superstition with teams looking to trinkets and charms to improve their chances of a lucky ball bounce.

Tyronn Lue makes big lineup changes for Game 2 Video
Relighting the spark in Boston, with eight points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes during Game 1, Thompson appears on the rise again. Tristan Thompson was more direct in his critique. "So, that's a good thing".

"Whether it's sitting at that front table or in the back room, where the whole thing unfolds, I always feel lucky and always feel like we're going to win it", Williams said. We look at some of the players available that could address that. The first time was in 1999 - the year after the team's six-championship dynasty disbanded.

The Sixers are also considering trading both picks to acquire a player from another team or move up in the draft.
