  • Can the NBA Draft lottery be rigged? An exploration as the Knicks’ big day approaches

After a turbulent season that saw the franchise finish with its worst record in the last three seasons, the New Orleans Pelicans are hoping for some good fortune during the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery. The individual workouts will play a massive role in Cleveland's selection, just like past year when Collin Sexton impressed everyone, including owner Dan Gilbert the day after Cleveland was swept in the NBA Finals.

The difference between finishing with the worst record and the third-worst record has shrunk. This allows the Mavs some extra chances to land inside that top four and keep their pick for another year.

Not landing the draft lottery's first pick will disappoint New York Knicks fans. Tuesday night's drawing will probably be the most anticipated one of the past decade because the prize that awaits the victor: a chance to draft the 6-foot-7, 285-pound flying brick house who crushed all of his.

For the Tar Heels, they had three players mocked to go in the Top 22 but just one player as a lottery selection.

Waratahs have love and care for Folau
The hits keep coming for Israel Folau , with ASICS ditching the fallen Wallabies superstar as an ambassador. The 30-year-old reportedly said his lack of remorse was because the post was made with love, not malice.

In addition to adding the No. 4 overall pick to the lottery drawing this year, the National Basketball Association also smoothed the odds a bit so the teams with the worst records have less chance of receiving the top choices. While this year's draft may be pretty heavy at the top, there will be valuable players throughout most of the first round.

Cleveland and Phoenix have equal odds at the top overall pick and would seem unlikely to move it if they won.

The Sacramento Kings, as you may have heard, do not have a first round pick this year. It stuck with them through draft night and helped Sexton become the team's pick at No. 8.

"Being at Duke was a dream come true for me", he said, "It was the best year of my life, unfortunately that's not the reality we live in". With the lack of depth in this draft, the Mavs may want to convey the pick this season though adding a quality wing to their mix of talent could also be a positive. Much of their draft-night plans will hinge upon Anthony Davis' future with the team.
