What time does the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery start?

What time does the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery start?

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

Could the "Young Bull" be headed to the "Big Apple?"

The 20-year veteran knows the Mavs won a total of just 57 games the past two seasons, and he realize that has to change. That they'll likely be able to add another top draft pick to the equation should be somewhat terrifying for opponents. But Perry has said the position may not matter if the available player's talent level is considerably higher.

BOSTON - A little more than three months after undergoing major brain surgery, Nick Gilbert, the 21-year-old son of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, will represent the franchise at the National Basketball Association draft lottery in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Cleveland Cavaliers: Oh sweet Jesus if this actually happens again... it's either a league effort to keep LeBron James in Cleveland or a preemptive strike to protect the team from another down period after losing him. In many cases, some of the players who were head scratchers aren't living in a bubble. One snag might be James' possible preference for Trae Young, with the four-time MVP expressing his admiration of the Oklahoma point guard on multiple occasions.

Though the Nets weren't as bad this season as Cleveland would have liked, the pick is likely to be no worse than eight. And when he makes trades, he does a great job of that also.

Augustine is 30 and ranked No. 33 among point guards in real plus-minus, according to ESPN.

Chances of getting struck by lightning in your lifetime (0.033 percent) per National Geographic.

The Suns are rewarded for their truly pitiful season (21-61) with favorable odds to land in the top-three. They've got a 5.3 percent chance a at the top selection with a little better 18.3 percent shot at a Top Three pick. The Celtics are granted the selection from Los Angeles, which enters the lottery with the 10th-best chance to land the No. 1 pick, if the pick is between No. 2 and No. 5. Chance for top-three pick: 2.2 percent.

That being said, two names stand out as contenders for the No. 1 pick: Luka Doncic and DeAndre Ayton. However, by virtue of the lottery, Cleveland has a 2.8 percent chance of having its pick move up to No. 1 and a 9.9 percent chance of it falling in the top three. Additionally, it makes sense to trade Gasol for long term assets anyway, and then they can really accelerate the rebuild with that trade return and their own lottery pick.

In Los Angeles, Sexton would have the opportunity to develop his game behind starting point guard Patrick Beverly. And teams rarely trade stars, so the Grizzlies will likely have to hit the jackpot through the draft over the next few years. Meanwhile, Nowitzki knows the Mavs collected one valuable piece of the draft puzzle a year ago when they selected point guard Dennis Smith Jr. ninth overall.

Now let's look at the top 3.
