2023 NBA draft lottery: Selection order for the 14 teams
The date and time for the NBA Draft have been scheduled for Thursday, June 22, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET.
The NBA draft lottery is an event that takes place annually to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the draft. This year marks the 39th edition of the event.
The order of selection for the first four picks will be determined through drawings. The remaining teams in the lottery will then select their picks from positions 5-14, with the team with the worst season record selecting first and the team with the best season record selecting last.
What is the selection order of the 14 NBA teams?
According to the latest odds, the Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs have the highest chance of winning the No. 1 pick, with each team having a 14% probability of winning. In addition, the Charlotte Hornets have a 12.5% chance of winning the lottery, while the Trail Blazers have a 10.5% chance, making them the two teams with the next highest odds of winning.
The team that gets the first pick will, of course, choose the French player Victor Wembanyama. He has been considered this year’s top pick for a long time.
As the lottery gets underway at 8:00 p.m. ET tonight, we will update the fourteen teams’ selection order.
