Tracking the results of the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery.

The 2018 NBA Draft Lottery will be held on Tuesday, May 15 and starts at 7:30 p.m. ET at Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. This will determine the top of the draft order.

The Phoenix Suns finished the season with the worst record in the NBA with a 21–61 showing. Because of their awful showing, the Suns have the best odds of landing the No. 1 pick at 25%. The Suns have never landed the No. 1 pick in franchise history but have selected second in 1969 and 1967.

The Memphis Grizzlies only had one more win with their 22–60 showing and have a 19.9% chance at the No. 1 pick. The Grizzlies have never selected a player with the No. 1 overall pick but their notable No. 2 picks include Mike Bibby (1998), Steve Francis (1999) and Hasheem Thabeet (2009).

The Dallas Mavericks finished 24–58 and have the third-best chance at the top pick at 13.8%. The Mavericks can only fall as far as the No. 6 pick. 

DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Luka Doncic, Michael Porter Jr., Mohamed Bamba and Trae Young are among the top players in this year’s draft class.

ESPN will broadcast the lottery draw live. It can also be streamed on WatchESPN.
