The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight, and the Wolves ... don't care

However, if the Sixers do end up getting the Lakers pick this year, this would mean the Celtics end up with the first-round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2019, which based off their previous records over the years could work wonders.

The 2018 NBA Draft Lottery takes place Tuesday night in Chicago, where the fortunes of 14-plus teams could change in a profound way. If it is not, then all they can do is look back on potential losses got away from them in the regular season. That is the kind of tanking that would make plenty of organizations jealous, but that wasn't the plan for the Knicks from the start.

After a woeful 25-57 season, the Orlando Magic is one of the 14 non-playoff teams entered in the lottery to determine this year's NBA Draft order. This is especially true in a year with some serious difference-makers available with lottery picks, such as DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and Jaren Jackson.

Rather, it will occur at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN, when the order of the lottery portion of the National Basketball Association draft is revealed.

Harry Kane scored the game's only goal after 50 minutes as the north London outfit moved up to third spot with one game remaining. "Now after 23 years in the Premier League Tottenham are above all the London clubs".

According to Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Clippers have a 0.6 percent chance of being the first overall pick and a 2.2 percent chance at landing in the top three.

As you can see, the Knicks cannot fall below the No. 12 pick in the draft. The selection is most likely going to land at No. 10 and in addition to that, the Sixers own their pick at No. 26.

Orlando's won the draft lottery three times in franchise history - 1992, 1993, 2004. They have not had the No. 1 pick since.

Ironically, the Cavs are in the lottery thanks to the Brooklyn pick they received in the Irving trade with the Celtics. That number would be much higher if it weren't for some bad trades made in the past. Oladipo, the best of the bunch, isn't with the team anymore.
