Following a disappointing regular season outing, the Washington Wizards once again find themselves in the NBA Draft Lottery. Even worse, since they were trying to make the playoffs, the odds are fairly low that they land the top pick for Victor Wembanyama.
Due to a tie with the Indiana Pacers, the odds for each selection were decided by a coin flip. The Wizards lost said flip and now see a huge chance that they may select outside of the top eight.
The Draft Lottery odds are as follows:
Pick number 12: >0.0%
Pick number 11: 0.4%
Pick number 10: 6.6%
Pick number 9: 31.1%
Pick number 8: 32.9%
Pick number 4: 7.8%
Pick number 3: 7.4%
Pick number 2: 7.0%
Pick number 1: 6.7%
The Wizards do not lead any team in odds at any position in the draft and are probably picking eighth or ninth. However, they still have a 28.9% chance of selecting in the top four and that is something most fans can be content with.
That 28.9% chance at a top four pick will likely be what draws fans of the Washington Wizards to watch the NBA Draft Lottery on May 16th.
