The NBA held its draft lottery on Tuesday night, and the Philadelphia 76ers won and will pick first.
The lottery held true to form as the 76ers had the best chances of winning the lottery with 26.9%. The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, the two teams with the second- and third-best chances at the top pick, will pick second and third, respectively.
The Sixers did fall short, though, of their dream scenario, which could have landed them two of the top-five picks in the draft. Had the Lakers’ pick not fallen among the top three, then it would have been transferred to the 76ers.
