The NBA Draft Lottery takes place tonight (Tuesday) in New York City. The lottery gives the Bucks a slim chance of improving their draft position in the upcoming June 23rd NBA Draft.
After missing the playoffs, the Bucks currently own the number-ten pick in the first round and the lottery will give them a 6.5% chance of moving up to the top three, and a 1.8% chance of actually landing the top pick in the draft.
The Bucks overcame those odds in 2005 when they won the top overall pick and selected Andrew Bogut. They also scored a top player two years ago when they took Jabari Parker with the second overall selection.
Bucks coach Jason Kidd will represent the team on the lottery’s T-V broadcast, while vice president Alex Lasry watches the selection of the ping pong balls backstage.
Tonight’s lottery begins around 6:45 on ESPN.
