2014 NBA Draft Lottery Odds: Updated Tank rankings

The NBA season is almost over and done with as just one more day of games remains on the regular season schedule. For some teams, this last game is just something that stands in the way of a potential playoff run while for others it’s the last game before their offseason of trying to improve begins.

While it isn’t the instant replenisher that is used to be, one of the best ways to build for the future is through the draft and the Draft Lottery is one of the few days non-playoff teams look forward to this time of year. With just one day left to go in the season, here’s a look at the tank rankings and who has the best chances of winning that No. 1 overall pick for June.
