Phoenix wins the draft lottery

Not every player would show this kind of effort in a game where their team was up 21 late in the second half.

"We don't have a position in mind that we're looking to improve on", Finely said.

Weltman's Magic suffered through the cruel nature that the NBA Lottery can sometimes produce on Tuesday night when Orlando emerged with the sixth pick - one spot lower than it came into the night with after posting the NBA's fifth-worst record (25-57).

For the first time since 2007, the Hawks will select in the lottery.

While that may sound like a negative to some, it's a sign that the Knicks are finally valuing the NBA Draft as a tool for rebuilding in a healthy and cost-efficient manner. I just don't see the Suns giving this pick up. "There's no strategy, no coaching, no expertise". There's a reason why you get homecourt advantage if you have a better record throughout the year because there is the idea that if you get to sleep in your own bed, play in front of your home crowd, then that's a good thing.

Then, there's the cases of the Kings and the Atlanta Hawks. Yet, the team with the best luck was the Sacramento Kings who vaulted from a predicted seventh slot all the way up to second.

Come on, we all know how this is going down.

Phoenix wins the draft lottery

The rest of the East: If Philadelphia and Boston don't add anymore players, they're already well-positioned to remain Eastern Conference contenders for the foreseeable future.

Orlando could have potentially been in that tiebreaker with Dallas and Atlanta had it not won its regular-season finale against the Washington Wizards.

"I brought as much luck as I could bring", Pitman said, per Weitzman. The Phoenix Suns have ownership of the No. 1 overall pick, winning the Draft Lottery for the first time in franchise history this past Tuesday.

After landing the No. 3 overall pick two years ago - used to select Jaylen Brown - and the No. 1 overall pick last year - traded for the No. 3 pick from Philadelphia and used to select Jayson Tatum - the franchise will have to wait a year to cash in on the extra pick it received from the 76ers.

"I really wanted that No. 1 pick to bring home to the city and the fans", said Brand, a former Sixers player turned general manager of team's National Basketball Association G-League squad, the Delaware Blue Coats. "We think this player at No. 10 is going to be able to provide us with defense, a little bit of shot-making, a little bit of shot creation". For the last three years, there has been so much talk about this kid; he has played for Real, Madrid.

"I wouldn't say disappointment; the odds coming in were that we'd likely go from five to six - that was the greatest likelihood, " Weltman said. Memphis owes its pick in next year's draft to Boston, with a protection if the pick lands in the top eight.

"I thought we were going to get No. 1, though, but it's OK", she said. I've spent a lot of time watching Duke's Grayson Allen and Kansas' Devonte Graham over the last four years.
