WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Wizards had a 19.9 percent chance of landing the first pick in Wednesday night’s NBA Draft Lottery.
The odds weren’t in their favor. Perhaps that cushioned the blow as the New Orleans Hornets were given the first overall pick in the draft.
The Charlotte Bobcats earned the right to pick the second.
The Wizards will have to wait to make their choice with the third pick.
The Top 5 was rounded out by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings who will pick fourth and fifth, respectively.
