The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery is just over one month away. This year, the NBA has also tweaked the lottery system with the three worst teams during the regular season having an even shot — 14 percent — at the top pick. The three teams with the best odds are the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns.
If you are the fourth worst team, you will have a 12.5 percent chance of getting the first pick and a 10.5 percent chance at fifth.
This year, the projected No. 1 pick is Duke Blue Devils star Zion Williamson.
The 2019 NBA Draft takes place Thursday, June 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The draft will be broadcast live on ESPN.
