What time does the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery start?

15 May, 2018, 22:31 | Author: Hannah Francis

With such high stakes, the lottery often inspires superstition with teams looking to trinkets and charms to improve their chances of a lucky ball bounce.

Pat Williams, a co-founder of the Magic, intends to carry the toy into Chicago's Palmer House Hilton for Tuesday night's 2018 NBA Draft Lottery. But for the Magic, a team that desperately needs a talent infusion, nabbing a top-three pick this year would be crucial.

Every team that doesn't make the playoffs is in the lottery. If they fall, then their front office will need to nail a pick in a tricky part of the draft.

Either way, Philadelphia has to be thrilled over this first-round pick of Los Angeles finally coming into play after all of these years since there will be plenty of great prospects to consider if they do end up with the selection. There are 1,000 combinations that are used and the combination of 11-12-13-14 is not used, so if it is drawn for one of the picks, they draw again to determine which team gets that pick. For everybody else, there is real hope that this could be a franchise-changing evening.




The Phoenix Suns had the worst record in the league during the regular season, so they have the best chance of winning (25 percent) the No. 1 overall draft pick as a result. The team will have an 8.4 percent chance of receiving the seventh pick and a 0.4 percent chance of receiving the eighth pick.

While the Cavaliers prepared for Game 2 in Boston on Tuesday, another member of their team was 1,000 miles away preparing for the future; after dealing with a life-threatening challenge over the past year. Denver also has two second-round picks, acquired via trades with the Clippers and Warriors.

The likely spot for the Magic to land is either No. 5 or No. 6.
