Orlando Magic Hoping 'Lil Penny' Can Bring Them Luck

Orlando Magic Hoping 'Lil Penny' Can Bring Them Luck

The NBA draft lottery goes down on Tuesday night. Remember, the lottery is technically only for the top 3 picks in the draft. Even if James returns it will become more hard as he ages.

And they very well may not.

Where they'll pick: Cleveland has a 72.5 percent chance of getting the No. 8 pick and a 16.8 percent chance of getting the No. 9 pick.

The Celtics secured the right to the Los Angeles Lakers' pick if it falls anywhere between 2-5, via a draft day trade with the Philadelphia 76ers last summer. It would open up a number of possibilities, and they'd surely let LeBron (the true GM) have a big say on how it's handled. He had a serviceable 14-year career in which he bounced around to 12 different teams, but his best years were in Dallas. Pick two or three goes to the Celtics.

If the pick doesn't convey, it transfers to next year's Sacramento Kings selection, again protected top one. Although the pick did not belong to the Mavs that year (after winning 52 games the year prior), they made a trade with the Washington Wizards to acquire who they believed was their point guard of the future.

Ayton's time at the University of Arizona would quickly make him a hometown hero in Phoenix, and his incredible build makes him a ideal fit for one of the team's biggest positions of need at center.

Where they'll pick: Los Angeles has less than a 1 percent chance of landing a top-3 pick with its most likely destination coming at No. 13 at 96 percent.

There was no musing about who the Wolves would send to represent them, and I imagine the clicks from Minnesotans on ESPN's fake lottery are way down this year. They haven't won a playoff series since 2003-2004.

Aaron Gordon is a restricted free agent and was the subject of constant trade rumors in-season. Bulls fans know anything is possible and the stars seem to be aligning once again. "So hopefully they can bring us some luck".

Chances of having twins (1.5 percent) per TwinsUK.

"It's really cool. I'm happy for Gillie", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, using a nickname for Gilbert. He averaged 17.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while leading Villanova to a national championship this past season.

The Suns have to be drooling at the thought of being able to draft Ayton at No. 1 or No. 2.

The Sixers are expected to keep the Lakers pick because Los Angeles finished with the league's 10th-worst record.

Sexton had a better overall body of work compared to Young at Oklahoma. "We talk about the things that we will like to do with our roster internally".

Philadelphia selected point guard Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 overall pick of last year's draft, but could the 76ers still be in the market for another playmaker at the position?

Far too often, the Knicks have found themselves in situations where they are only a pick or two away from a potential superstar. Gilgeous-Alexander has a developed skill set and the size to be a plus-defender against National Basketball Association point guards, shooting guards and maybe even small forwards. Winning the lottery tonight could be a franchise-saving turn of events for the state of the Grizzlies.
