NBA Draft Lottery Preview

After a dismal season performance by the Philadelphia Sixers, they begin their off-season begins with the NBA Draft Lottery. The Sixers have had a decent amount of success in the lottery over the past 2 decades, but they have not been able to put these high draft picks together and win a championship. Some of the top draft picks in Sixers’ history include Billy Cunningham, Charles Barkley, Jerry Stackhouse, Allen Iverson, Andre Iguodala, and Evan Turner. If they were to get the first overall pick, Nerlens Noel would certainly be a player to look at, to fill the gaping hole at the Center position. Lets take a look at the odds of getting the first overall pick for each of the bottom 14 teams:

Orlando Magic: 25%

Charlotte Bobcats: 19.9%
