Four disappointing scenarios for 2019 NBA Draft Lottery

But every team has a horse in the NBA Draft, and the big day for lottery teams is coming up in Tuesday's NBA Draft Lottery.

Aside from just seeing who the Mavs might take, why not take a look at who the teams after Dallas might be taking with their various picks throughout the draft. In an appearance on ESPN Radio on Monday, GM Scott Perry mentioned the power forward Hachimura, the Virginia swingman Hunter and referenced Williamson's wingmen - obviously referring to Barrett and Cam Reddish - as being potential top-five picks.

After drawings are conducted for the first four picks of the NBA Draft, the other lottery teams will continue to pick in inverse order of their regular-season record. With the goal of curbing tanking efforts, the first four picks in the draft are now ordered by the lottery as opposed to the first three in the previous structure.

What teams are involved and what are their odds of winning?

Charlotte, Miami and Sacramento (to Boston) round out the bottom with a 1 percent shot. Having four picks this year is probably the worst possible outcome for Boston.

The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will be identical to the OnePlus 7 Pro , aside from the fact it will support 5G connectivity. There's no confirmation this is indeed the OnePlus 7 Pro , but it sure looks a lot like what we've seen before.

Heading into the lottery, there is a 26.2 percent chance that the Grizzlies pick lands in the top-4, and a 31.2 percent chance at it being the No. 8 selection.

Cleveland and Phoenix have equal odds at the top overall pick and would seem unlikely to move it if they won. The Wolves could also land anywhere from No. 12 to 14 in the unlikely event that two or more teams jump them. "Our staff has been out the entire year looking at a number of players at the top of this draft". That was because the first three picks were the only ones determined by the lottery. In that case, the pick would go to the Philadelphia 76ers, and Boston would get Philly's pick at No. 24.

No. 2 to 21: The No. 1 pick is a no-brainer with Williamson. More to come as the NBA Draft Lottery results near.
