Lady Luck smiled on the Magic… and the Kings. On Tuesday the NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago and Orlando took the first selection, with Sacramento jumping from seventh to fourth for the next draft.

The Magic pick first by fourth time and first since 2004, when they chose Dwight Howard. In 1992 they chose Shaquille O’Neal and the following year they won the Lottery again, took Chris Weber, but I never played with them since they changed it to Penny Hardaway.

What is the NBA Draft Lottery and why was it established? History

From 1985the NBA wanted to attack the tanking and, contrary to the NFL, does not give the first pick of the next Draft to the team that finished last season with the worst record. Instead, assign probabilities to pick first each of the 14 teams that did not make it to the Playoffs. A bingo-style draw is made and the team with the winning combination has that selection.

How does the NBA Draft 2022 Lottery work? Rules and format

The odds become a number of combinations of ping-pong balls, as if playing bingo. 14 balls, numbered from 1 to 14are placed in a machine, and Four balls are drawn. 1,000 of the 1,001 possible combinations of four balls are distributed among all the teams, according to his mark from last season, with a last one remaining null. In recent years, to discourage losing at the end of the year, the same probability is distributed to the three worst teams.

in the lottery the draw is only made four times, for the first four picks, with 5th through 30th going in reverse order of the mark in the regular season.

Jabari Smith Jr., Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero and the top prospects in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Who are the top prospects in the 2021 NBA Draft?

The experts (and the bets) mark a fight between three for the first selection of the Draft, with two forwards and a pvot fighting to be the chosen number 1.

Chet Holmgren – Gonzaga

A unicorn’. A player with small forward skills, but who is 2.13 meters tall, but weighs less than 95 kilos; a slightly taller Porzingis, considerably thinner and much better defensively.

He averaged 3.7 blocks and 9.9 rebounds, but shot 39% from 3-point range on a Zags that didn’t take advantage of his ability with the ball, leaving it parked many times behind the goal, leaving the paint for the ‘moustache’ Drew Timme.

His game has a mix ofThe physicality of Porzingis, the defense of Rudy Gobert and the IQ of Pau Gasol. The modern center, though, must develop physically to play in the NBA.

Jabari Smith Jr. – Auburn

Son of a former NBA player (his father played 5 years between the Kings, 76ers and Nets. At Auburn he never exploited his offensive skills, although he stood out for his athletic ability and mobility. 42% triple is not insignificant.

From its size, it looks like Harrison Barnes or Michael Porter Jr.

Paolo Banchero – Duke

The last in the line of players who spent only one year at Duke, following in the footsteps of Jayson Tatum, Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, among others.

A born scorer, with good size to play on the perimeter. With some Carmelo Anthony and Julius Randle.
