We won’t know the official draft order until the NBA Draft Lottery takes place and awards the No. 1 pick, but for the time being we have a good idea of where teams will pick and who they will be picking when they go on the clock.
In this mock draft, we simulated the lottery to see what the result was and that ended up being a lottery win of the Orlando Magic have come away big winners, but so too have the New Orleans Pelicans. If the lottery shakes out like the standings currently are, the Pelicans won’t have a first round pick. In this scenario, they drew the No. 3 pick which is almost as good as winning the lottery.
