2016 NBA Draft Lottery Odds for #1


The 2016 NBA Draft Lottery is scheduled for tonight at 8 p.m. ET, right before the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors play Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Philadelphia 76ers have the best odds at 25 percent, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers at 19.9 percent. If the Lakers’ pick isn’t in the top three, though, they will lose it to the 76ers. The Celtics have the third-best odds to land the No. 1 overall pick, thanks to their 2013 lob sided trade with the Brooklyn Nets. Both the Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors can’t earn the No. 1 spot because of swap rights. The Nuggets would receive the No. 1 pick if the Raptors win it, and the 76ers and Kings would swap picks if Sacramento finishes ahead of Philadelphia in the lottery. The top two picks in this years draft are expected to be LSU’s Ben Simmons and Duke’s Brandon Ingram.

Here are the full odds for the draft lottery:

1. Philadelphia 76ers: 25 percent

2. Los Angeles Lakers: 19.9 percent

3. Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets): 15.6 percent

4. Phoenix Suns: 11.9 percent

5. Minnesota Timberwolves: 8.8 percent

6. New Orleans Pelicans: 6.3 percent
