With the NBA regular season all wrapped up and the postseason set to begin, the teams that missed out on the playoffs are looking ahead to the upcoming draft lottery to see where they will be slated in the 2013 NBA Draft order. The NBA Draft lottery is as exciting as it gets for the teams that spent their season among the bottom of the league’s rankings.

1. Orlando Magic — 25 percent
