RJ Barrett Declares Himself The Best Player In The NBA Draft


Rosas is set to represent the Wolves in Chicago at Tuesday's draft lottery, the annual event in which the future of several franchises hinge on the fate of pingpong balls.

Now, after a disappointing season, Minnesota will look to grab a pick in the top-four. Here's everything you need to know about watching the lottery live, no cable subscription required.

Notes: This is the first lottery drawing since the NBA's Board of Governors leveled out the odds for lottery teams. Previously, the team with the worst record had a 25 percent chance, followed by 19.9 and 15.6 percent chances of the next two teams.

Depending on their placement, picks for the Grizzlies and Mavericks could transfer to the Celtics and Hawks, respectively. If Dallas were able to score the top overall pick, things would get real interesting, real quick.

Last week, SNY reported the Pelicans were doing their due diligence on Knicks rookie forward Kevin Knox and the New York Post said the Pelicans would want Knox, Chalmette's Mitchell Robinson and multiple picks in the deal. "This is going to be such an quake summer and the first tremor we're gonna get is which team gets the rights to Zion Williamson". The Bulls are a good example of a team that needs to add to the position that Morant fills and doesn't need immediate help where Zion would play, but it is still well worth taking the Duke forward first overall. Most experts believe Duke's Zion Williamson will be taken first, but which team will have that first pick? In 2011, Cleveland won the No. 1 overall selection, which turned into Kyrie Irving.

Okay, what about the Wizards?

In other words, each of the three teams has just less than a 1-in-7 chance to win.

The best they have done is kept the No. 1 pick and drafted Karl-Anthony Towns in 2015 after finishing that season with the league's worst record. Landing No. 1 could completely change a franchise. The Hawks would perfectly fit with Zion considering their team first approach and their three-point shooting ability.
