Magic bringing Lil' Penny out of retirement for NBA Draft Lottery

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.

Due to a trade with the Boston Celtics previous year to move up two spots in the draft in order to land Markelle Fultz at No. 1, Philadelphia could miss out on the Los Angeles pick if it happens to fall between 2-5.

Regardless of the circumstances, the finish is always very exciting, as first noted when the New York Knicks got the first overall pick in 1985 and had the chance to select the clear No. 1 prospect in the draft (Georgetown center Patrick Ewing). First, the National Basketball Association lottery drawing uncovers the first three teams in the draft.

Lately, teams have taken to bringing good luck totems and other various things, or even sending certain people as representatives in an odd effort to influence a drawing that has already taken place. For everybody else, there is real hope that this could be a franchise-changing evening.

The odds aren't great for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In an interplanetary first, Nasa plans to fly a helicopter on Mars

The Kings' 2018 NBA Draft positioning will be determined Tuesday night at the annual NBA Draft Lottery. The Nets pick will go to the Cavaliers and the Pistons pick will go to the Clippers.

There also are several trades at play.

More likely outcomes are that the Magic will obtain the fifth pick (a 26.2 percent chance) or the sixth pick (a 35.9 percent chance). If it's No. 2 or No. 3, it goes to Boston, while Philadelphia keeps it at No. 1.

None of those trinkets worked - at least not well enough to help the Magic land a superstar. Crazier stuff has happened, though, and adding another blue-chip prospect to either one of these teams seems nearly unfair.
