    Here’s what the odds look like for the No. 1 pick:

    • Boston Celtics*, 25%
    • Phoenix Suns, 19.9%
    • Los Angeles Lakers*, 15.6%
    • Philadelphia 76ers, 14.7%
    • Orlando Magic, 8.8%
    • Minnesota Timberwolves, 5.3%
    • New York Knicks, 5.3%
    • Sacramento Kings*, 0%
    • Dallas Mavericks, 1.7%
    • New Orleans Pelicans*, 1.1%
    • Charlotte Hornets, 0.8%
    • Detroit Pistons, 0.7%
    • Denver Nuggets, 0.6%
    • Miami Heat, 0.5%

    * These picks are affected by trades.

    Lottery Representatives:
    • Celtics: owner Wyc Grousbeck
    • Hornets: general manager Rich Cho
    • Mavericks: assistant vice president and team legend Michael Finley
    • Nuggets: shooting guard Gary Harris
    • Pistons: general manager Jeff Bower
    • Lakers: president of basketball operations and team legend Magic Johnson
    • Heat: vice president of player programs and team legend Alonzo Mourning
    • Timberwolves: small forward Andrew Wiggins
    • Pelicans: coach Alvin Gentry
    • Knicks: broadcaster and team legend Walt Frazier
    • Magic: coach Frank Vogel
    • 76ers: center Joel Embiid
    • Suns: shooting guard Devin Booker
    • Kings: coach Dave Joerger
    Relevant trades:
    • Celtics - Nets Pick Swap: Due to the Pierce, Garnett, Terry trade in 2013, the Celtics have the rights to swap 1st round picks with the Brooklyn Nets this year.

    • Lakers - 76ers Protection: The 76ers get the higher of their pick and the Kings’ pick thanks to the Nik Stauskas trade of 2015. That means the Kings cannot pick first but could pick second, if the Sixers get the first pick.

    • Pelicans - Kings Protection: If the Pelicans’ pick lands in the top three via the lottery, they get to keep it. If not, the Kings get it as part of the DeMarcus Cousins trade earlier this year. The Pelicans have a 4% chance to keep their pick this year. If they do keep it, the pick is only No. 1 protected next year.
    LAKERS-76ERS PROTECTION CONTINUED
    If the Lakers’ pick falls out of the top three, the 76ers get it. That comes because the Lakers traded a protected pick to the Suns in 2012 for Steve Nash, then the Suns traded that protected pick to the 76ers in a three-team deal in 2016. There’s a 46.9% chance the Lakers keep their pick, 53.1% chance they lose it.

    The bizarre part here is that, if the Lakers do keep their pick, they automatically lose it next year to the Sixers, as all the protections are removed. Also, they would then lose their 2019 first-rounder to the Magic because of the 2012 Dwight Howard trade. That only works if the Lakers keep their pick, as that selection turns into two second-rounders if the Lakers are not allowed to send their 2019 first-rounder. The NBA has a rule that prevents teams from dealing two consecutive first-round picks.

    Assuming Nike is dying to land in LA with the Lakers... but it won't be with Lonzo Ball.

    Or will it? If Lakers get #1 pick, anything can happen... including a Lonzo + Nike partnership.

    BBB is a DOA brand.

    Let's hope the NBA didn't hire the same accounting firm as the Oscars.

    There was basically a 50-50 shot they kept their pick. Next year no protection so they better win.
