Josh Jackson Invites Special Guest to Attend 2018 NBA Draft Lottery

For the first time, the National Basketball Association will hold their annual draft lottery in Chicago, as the selections will be announced at 6:30 PM on Tuesday at the Palmer House Hilton.

43 ... the retired number worn by Brad Daughtery after he was chosen by the Cavs with the first pick earned in the 1986 NBA Draft Lottery. Right now, the Sixers have around $25 million to give to free agents. Here is a brief look at how the lottery works, what to expect and how to handle the results. But for the Magic, a team that desperately needs a talent infusion, nabbing a top-three pick this year would be crucial.

So Williams and the Magic can use all the luck they can get their hands on Tuesday. The Lakers' pick goes to Philadelphia or Boston, depending on where it falls.

Nevertheless, the Celtics will be represented at the lottery, just in case.

'Vomitive. Pathetic': Lars Von Trier film prompts mass walkouts at Cannes
The House That Jack Built premieres at Cannes today ( May 14 ), so we'll likely hear how the film is sooner rather than later. And Lars von Trier's new movie , The House That Jack Built , found audience members walking out part way through viewing.

This is done for the first three picks. The Celtics would take whichever one is more favorable, unless one of those picks is the first overall. Since then, their lottery picks have consisted of a mixed bag of Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, Domantas Sabonis and Jonathan Isaac. The team with the next worst record - which is Memphis this season - has the next-most combinations, and so on.

Put another way, if C's don't secure the Lakers' 2018 pick, they'll have at least an 86 percent chance of acquiring the Kings' 2019 pick.

With such high stakes, the lottery often inspires superstition with teams looking to trinkets and charms to improve their chances of a lucky ball bounce. It has 1.3 and 1.6 percent chances of falling second and third, respectively.

"Whether it's sitting at that front table or in the back room, where the whole thing unfolds, I always feel lucky and always feel like we're going to win it", Williams said.
