Four disappointing scenarios for 2019 NBA Draft Lottery

Four disappointing scenarios for 2019 NBA Draft Lottery

Under the old rules, the worst team had a 25% chance of landing the top pick.

The Sacramento Kings, as you may have heard, do not have a first round pick this year.

They will also have a chance to take the Mavericks first rounder dependent on the lottery results. With the lack of depth in this draft, the Mavs may want to convey the pick this season though adding a quality wing to their mix of talent could also be a positive.

Over the past five years, no team slotted eighth entering the lottery emerged with a higher (better) position than what they had going into the proceedings.


The Atlanta Hawks are hopeful that tomorrow night's Draft Lottery will end with them owning the first pick and the ability to draft Zion Williamson.

No. 2 to 21: The No. 1 pick is a no-brainer with Williamson. All season, a handful of teams have subtly or not-so-subtly jockeyed for the best odds at the top pick. Why? NY has a 14 percent chance of winning the lottery, which is tied for the best odds with the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Nichols will be on-site in Chicago for this year's Draft Lottery, but she's doing more than being part of the event's telecast for the Worldwide Leader. It's not a great percentage, but there's still a chance and if they Sixers win the odds, the franchise will have to make a choice. If David Griffin can convince Davis to stick around, it wouldn't be farfetched to see New Orleans flip its lottery pick for a proven National Basketball Association player that can provide an impact immediately. Because of the alterations, more teams can harbor realistic dreams of landing Duke star Zion Williamson with the first choice. 2, 3 and 4 picks respectively, according to the website tankathon.com. Memphis fielded trade offers for Conley at the February deadline, but opted to keep the franchise's career leading scorer. Davis demanded a trade this season with the Lakers as the preferred destination, but when that deal never materialized before the February trade deadline, it gave 28 other teams hope for an offseason coup.
