The NBA Draft Lottery is tonight, and the Wolves ... don't care
15 May 2018, 05:38 | Henrietta Morgan
When the NBA Draft Lottery, aka the way the NBA can dictate who ends up with top players in the draft (wink, wink), goes down on Tuesday night, one team will bring a face from the past with them as they hope for a lucky bounce of a ping pong ball.
Magic senior vice president Pat Williams told the Orlando Sentinel that he is taking an old talking Lil' Penny doll to Chicago's Palmer House Hilton to oversee the proceedings. With the National Basketball Association set to change its lottery format beginning next season - the oddswill be smoothed out among lottery teams, which theoretically reduces the incentive to tank - this year's race to the bottom could be perhaps the last of its kind.
Because Orlando finished with the NBA's fifth-worst record, it will have an 8.8 percent chance of winning the lottery, a 9.6 percent likelihood of receiving the second pick and 10.7 percent odds of picking third.
O'Neal, Hardaway and Howard became cornerstone players. The Magic traded Oladipo and Sabonis on draft night in 2016 to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Williams will sit in the room where the pingpong balls are drawn.
