The NBA Draft Lottery is coming, and the landscape of the future of the NBA will once again shift.

On May 16, the lottery will take place prior to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. With the game likely to tip off at 8 p.m. on ESPN, the lotto will take place just beforehand, as each non playoff team will send a representitive to wait for the order of ping pong balls pulled to determine the order of the 2017 NBA draft — which takes place just over a month later in June.

The top few picks are especially coveted this season as guards Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz are expected to go off the board at Nos. 1 and 2 with a bevy of lottery talent also expected to be snatched in the picks following.

Below are the odds of each team getting the No. 1 overall pick, along with their records respectively from this past season:

1. Brooklyn Nets (20-62) The Celtics own the rights to this pick


2. Phoenix Suns (24-58)


3. Los Angeles Lakers (26-56)
