What is the NBA Draft Lottery?
Every year the NBA holds the NBA Draft lottery with the 14 teams that did not make it to the postseason. The league's governing body designed this system with the intention of creating a balanced tournament that avoids super teams that are stacked with the best young prospects
Following the revised format, modified in 2017, the NBA Draft Lottery has ensured that the team with the worst record will be given no worse than the fifth pick. This new system levels the odds within the top of the NBA Draft Lottery, meaning that the teams with the 3 worse regular-season records will have a 14 percent opportunity of winning the lottery. Before the-2019 format, the top seed team had a 25 percent, the second a 19.9 percent, and the third had 15.6 percent of winning the first pick prize.
In addition, this year marks the 37th annual NBA Draft Lottery, and it will determine the order of the first 14 picks of the 2021 NBA Draft. After the first four picks of the NBA Draft are decided, the rest of the teams in the lottery will be selected in inverse order of the 2020-21 season record.
