What are the odds Miami lands the No. 1 pick?

Of the 21 players picked, 10 have played 500 games or more, and Alec Burks, Steven Adams, Dario Saric, Jeremy Lamb, Trey Lyles and Taurean Prince could all have long careers as well. As the best team - record-wise - in the lottery, Miami will be assigned the fewest of the 1,001 combinations of any of the 14 non-playoff teams. If the Knicks don't win the Lottery, they likely will have the most interestingly dressed representative.

Having tried Russell off the ball some last season, the Lakers feel confident they could play him alongside a dynamic rookie point guard.

Good luck Sixers Nation lets trust the process for another night.

First, the Kings can not win the No. 1 pick due to their 2015 salary dump of Jason Thompson, Carl Landry and Nik Stauskas - a deal that sent the trio to Philadelphia to clear out space under the salary cap.

Basically, whichever team's number is the last ping pong ball gets to go first in the draft followed by order of the other ping pong balls with their respective teams. The odds of that happening are just 2.2% and 1.8% respectively.

But even so, Ford notes that it's unlikely that the Celtics would pass on a No. 1 talent because of the lack of a one-on-one workout.

They could use the pick on Markelle Fultz and then trade Kris Dunn or Ricky Rubio ... or they could keep all three. That's in part because their pick is top-3 protected.

The Kings' most glaring need in the draft is at point guard. They only have a 0.8% chance of getting the first overall pick and a 2.9% of getting a top three pick.

After finishing with the 12th-worst record in the league, the Pistons would hold the 12th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft if all falls according to odds.

For the opposite reason, the Orlando Magic have a lot to lose on lottery night.

Because of a prior trade, if the Lakers do not win a top-three pick - a 53.08 percent chance - the Magic will receive the Lakers' unprotected first-round pick in 2019. The Suns have a 56 percent chance of ending up in the top three.

PELICANS: New Orleans made a big move in February when it acquired DeMarcus Cousins from Sacramento, and now the Pelicans will figure out how costly it was. "It's a really good time to get to have some social interaction with the players and understand what type of people they are, what their character is". Minnesota was slotted to pick second in 2010, but fell to fourth in the lottery, where it selected Wes Johnson.

Pick: No. 9, Samaki Walker, Louisville.

Because of this, all of the Sixers' odds become compounded with the Kings' odds, increasing the chance that the Sixers are awarded a top three selection, and simultaneously reducing the chances that the Lakers remain in the top three.

There's only a.007 percent chance of that happening, but it would be pretty hilarious if it did.
