The 2011 NBA Draft Lottery is set for 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Twelve teams have a chance to win the No. 1 pick in the June draft -- and with it a chance to draft Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams or another prospect. But not all chances are created equal. To prevent outright tanking, the NBA has a weighted lottery that gives the worst teams the best opportunity to win the No. 1, 2 or 3 pick, but doesn't make it a certainty.
Below are the odds that each team will win the No. 1 pick or a top three pick. (Only the top three picks are up for grabs.)
|Team||No. 1 Pick||Top 3 Pick|
|Jazz (from Nets)||7.5%||25.3%|
|Cavs (from Clippers)||2.8%||10.0%|
Once the top three picks are determined, the remainder of the top 14 picks in the draft will be arranged by reverse order of regular season record.
