2, 3 and 4 picks respectively, according to the website tankathon.com. It flattened the odds at the top so that the worst three teams each have a 14% chance of the top pick.

So what are the Mavs chances of keeping their pick? In the pre-2019 structure, the top seed had a 25 percent of winning the lottery, the second seed had a 19.9 percent and the third seed had a 15.6 percent.

The Grizzlies now sit in the No. 8 spot in the lottery.

They will enter Tuesday with 13.9% odds of jumping into the top four, which includes a 3% chance of landing the top pick. Best case scenario for the Hawks will be landing the first pick in the draft along with another top ten pick and the ability to add a top free agent.

After a turbulent season that saw the franchise finish with its worst record in the last three seasons, the New Orleans Pelicans are hoping for some good fortune during the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery.

After learning where their lottery pick lands, members of the Lakers' front office and scouting department will remain in Chicago for the NBA Draft Combine from Wednesday through Saturday. Rosalyn Windson and Joanne Tsz Yan chanted on a side walk, "Zion Williamson, Zion Williamson, Zion Williamson, Zion Williamson, Zion Williamson". Expecting the Sacramento pick to jump into the top four is setting yourself up for disappointment.

So while previous years resulted in the team with the highest odds' favor, the Knicks will need lottery luck.

The Celtics have plenty of possibilities Tuesday, but getting the No. 1 pick is not one of them. With the new structure in place, their shot at the top pick is more than doubled and their chance to land within the top five rose by 17 percent. Griffin is a dunking machine and was recently asked by TMZ Sports about Zion and whether he can be one of the best dunkers to ever play in the National Basketball Association. Or, Williamson's presence in NY could make Kyrie Irving more intrigued by the possibility of signing with the Knicks.

Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren will be the team's representative in the lottery drawing room, and team president Rich Gotham will be on the stage during the reveal, sharing a booth with 76ers president Chris Heck, whose team will also be in contention for the Kings pick.

It also would not be ideal for the Grizzlies to get the No. 1 pick, because it would probably devalue the future first-round choice Boston will receive from Memphis.
