NBA Draft 2013: NBA Lottery Odds

I hope all of you have worn your lucky socks today, since Christmas time has arrived for every NBA team which didn’t qualify for the playoffs. The NBA lottery is filled with hope, but unfortunately only one team will prevail amongst the others, all of which desperately cling to their chance in hopes of adding more young talent to their struggling club.

So what are the odds your not-so-good favorite basketball team wins the luck of the draw?


  1. Orlando Magic: 25%

  2. Charlotte Bobcats: 19.9%

  3. Cleveland Cavaliers: 15.6%

  4. Phoenix Suns: 11.9%

  5. New Orleans Pelicans: 8.8%

  6. Sacramento Kings: 6.3%

  7. Detroit Pistons: 3.6%

  8. Washington Wizards: 3.5%

  9. Minnesota Timberwolves: 1.7%

  10. Portland Trail Blazers: 1.1%

  11. Philadelphia 76ers: 0.8%

  12. Toronto Raptors: 0.7%

  13. Dallas Mavericks: 0.6%

  14. Utah Jazz: 0.5%


It’s been quite some time since the projected team with the highest odds has won the NBA Draft Lottery, but with that said, it would take some major luck for the Washington Wizards to move up in the draft. There is approximately a 70% chance that the Wizards will remain in the 8th spot, so don’t be overly optimistic. Bradley Beal will be representing the Wizards tonight. A number of NBA Draft prospects will also be attending the lottery, possibly even seeing where their fate will be determined.

The lottery will be taking place at 8:30 PM on ESPN.
