NBA Tanking: Orlando Magic clinch third-worst record


Over last few years, the hype surrounding the 2014 NBA Draft has continued to sky rocket, especially after Andrew Wiggins reclassified and entered school in 2013.

Wiggins, the Kansas Jayhawks’ forward, his teammate, center Joel Embiid, Australian point guard Dante Exum and Oklahoma State Cowboys’ guard Marcus Smart headline a group that has already declared for the daft and most expect Kentucky Wildcats power forward Julius Randle and Duke Blue Devils’ forward Jabari Parker (although he has applied for housing next year) to do the same any day now.

With a 101-86 loss to the Indiana Pacers, who did not play Paul George, Lance Stephenson or David West and did not play Roy Hibbert or George Hill in the second half, the Orlando Magic finished with a record of 23-59, clinching the third worst record in the NBA, giving them the third best chance to win the draft lottery. They have a 15.6% to get the top pick, a 15.74% to get the second pick, a 15.59% chance to get the third pick, a 22.57%. to get the fourth pick, a 26.48% to get the fifth pick and a 4.03% to get the sixth pick.

They can’t finish with worse than the sixth overall pick.
