The 2015 NBA Draft Lottery 

10410368 788246317875273 1385643545370603635 nThe NBA Draft lottery can be hard to understand. All 30 teams get assigned one draft pick for each of the two rounds.

After the first three picks are determined by the weighted lottery, the NBA lottery’s number one seed becomes the team with the worst record from the previous season. That team will have a 25 percent chance at their first pick and a 21.5 percent chance at getting their second.

The number two seed will be the team with the second worst record and so on. The second team will have a 19.9 percent chance at getting their first pick and an 18.8 percent chance at getting their second.

The last seed will be the team in the NBA which had the best record in the 2015 season. They will only have 0.5 percent chance at receiving their first pick and a 0.6 percent chance at getting their second.
