  • Teams hope to find luck in NBA draft lottery

Phoenix has the best odds of landing the No. 1 pick (25 percent) after posting a league-worst 21-61 record last season.

Due to a trade with the Boston Celtics a year ago to move up two spots in the draft in order to land Markelle Fultz at No. 1, Philadelphia could miss out on the Los Angeles pick if it happens to fall between 2-5. And get a full breakdown of the lottery odds here. Los Angeles acquired Detroit's pick in the Blake Griffin trade, with that pick being top-three protected. First, the National Basketball Association lottery drawing uncovers the first three teams in the draft.

Lithuania gets into Eurovision final
The UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain do not compete in the semi finals as they have a direct pass through to the final. Ryan O'Shaughnessy, 25, got himself into a bit of trouble when he went down the reality route in both Ireland and the UK.

So that's your challenge this week - name all 27 of them. Along with the Suns, the Grizzlies, Mavericks, Hawks and Magic make up the other teams with the five best odds at getting the No. 1 pick. But even he would readily acknowledge how important the lottery is to the Magic, a franchise in need of a jump-start.

The Kings' 2018 NBA Draft positioning will be determined Tuesday night at the annual NBA Draft Lottery. 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. If it is not, then all they can do is look back on potential losses got away from them in the regular season. The Cavaliers have had absolutely absurd lottery luck in recent years, and moving up would mean that they'd have an asset to help them trade for a star in order to convince LeBron James to stay ... or a young player that can help them build something new in the post-LeBron years.

When it comes to the Pistons' pick, the Clippers are obviously going to want to get unlucky.

The likely spot for the Magic to land is either No. 5 or No. 6. If it's No. 1 or it doesn't rise, the Philadelphia 76ers will have the pick.
