The Bulls look for some hometown luck in the NBA Draft Lottery

16 May 2018, 01:34 | Pamela Mathis

The Grizzlies, who beat the Suns head-to-head, hold the next-best odds to hold the top spot in the 2018 NBA Draft when ping-pong balls are sorted out at the Palmer House.

Entering Tuesday night's National Basketball Association draft lottery (ESPN, 7:30 p.m.), the Sixers have a good chance at picking up a top-10 pick, a slim chance at losing their pick to the Boston Celtics and an even slimmer chance at the top overall pick for the third straight season.

Where they'll pick: Philadelphia will get the Lakers first-round pick, assuming it doesn't land anywhere from No. 2-5 in the draft, in which case it would go to the Boston Celtics. If it's anything else, the 76ers get it.

Phoenix has a 25-per-cent chance of winning the No. 1 pick, followed by Memphis (19.9 per cent), Dallas (13.8 per cent) and Atlanta (13.7 per cent).

In an Eastern Conference that seems to be shifting away from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Sixers have the potential to be competitive for the foreseeable future. And after missing the playoffs by one game this season, they'll need a miracle to land the No. 1 overall pick.

"We put the finest minds we've got on this one, and this is what they came up with", Williams joked, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

However the results of this lottery unfold, Nowitzki knows the real work comes next month when the draft is held.

"Doncic would also be a tremendous fit alongside Devin Booker in the backcourt, even though his size (6'7") suggests his position to be that of a wing more than a potential franchise point guard.

Though the Nets weren't as bad this season as Cleveland would have liked, the pick is likely to be no worse than eight.

There's a 77.07 percent chance the Bulls select sixth or seventh, which means there isn't likely to be any surprises for Chicago. Philly, meanwhile, could have a top-10 pick this year, and now will have four (!) projected lottery picks next year as well.

The Sixers will also have a pick later in the first round, which gives them the chance to add some more young talent to their roster. "Everything is first-class. They do things the right way, and it's a great experience for me". Teams can send whoever they like to represent them at the lottery: a player, an executive, somebody's relative. LA Clippers hope he brings them luck as they have two shots to move up and are the only team with two picks in the top 14. The pick won't fall in slots 4-9.

I do not think the Cavs will shoot as poorly as they did Sunday afternoon. Arizona center DeAndre Ayton is destined for the Suns.

NY drafted 6-foot-5, 190-pound point guard Frank Ntilikina with the No. 8 overall pick previous year.

Both Thomas' hip and Irving's knee required season-ending surgeries, and Altman was able to ship Thomas and Crowder out in subsequent deals to build the team on the fly that now has Cleveland four wins from making a fourth straight Finals appearance.
