The NBA draft lottery will take place tonight in Chicago, Illinois. Starting at 8:30 p.m. tonight, we will find out who will pick first in the NBA draft.
Although the draft is not until June, the order of the draft will be decided tonight ahead of game one of the Western Conference Finals.
The draft rules have changed since the 2018 lottery.
Starting this year, no team will have more than a 14% chance of getting the first overall pick.
Three teams will have the maximum 14% chance coming into tonight. The New York Knicks, Clevland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns have an equal chance at the number one pick.
Following them is the Chicago Bulls at 12.5% and the Atlanta Hawks at 10%.

The most desired player in this draft is Duke star, Zion Williamson. It is apparent that he will be the number one overall pick regardless of who gets it.
Rounding out the top five should be Ja Morant, RJ Barret, Jaxson Hayes, and Darius Garland.
