Atlanta Hawks Among Teams Hoping to Land Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson and Jim Boeheim

The Grizzlies now sit in the No. 8 spot in the lottery.

Look at the middle of the lottery: Teams with the sixth- through ninth-worst records have (in some cases) doubled their chances of landing in the top five.

While the Knicks had a 17-65 record, it only provided 14 percent odds to win the lottery, tying them with the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers as part of the newly implemented structure for 2019.

So what are the Mavs chances of keeping their pick? If New Orleans had to choose one year to hold onto its pick, it chose the right one, at least.

The Spartanburg, South Carolina native swept every single National Player of the Year Award as well as being a consensus First Team All-American, while captivating the nation with his athletic ability and basketball awareness, in addition to his love and passion for the game.

Hillsborough’s risk of measles outbreak among highest in USA , study says
A post-outbreak review found that approximately 20% of cases were reported in people from the Pacific islands, particularly Samoa. The AMA has also urged the federal government to fund universal catch-up vaccinations for all Australians through the NIP.

Generally, the chance to grab the ninth overall choice would be enticing. With an eye on the first pick, they can have their highest selection in 1985, the first year of the lottery, when Patrick Ewing became the pick and changed the franchise for 15 years. This gives lottery teams increased odds of landing in the top four than what it used to be, something Adam Silver did in order to try to dissuade teams from the tanking mentality. Likewise, the odds were smoothed across the board, giving teams in the middle of the lottery a better chance at moving up into the top-four slots.

Zion to Atlanta is a dream scenario that is unlikely to happen.

The Celtics have plenty of possibilities Tuesday, but getting the No. 1 pick is not one of them.

The Celtics would prefer not to see the Knicks or Lakers (2 percent chance) win the No. 1 pick, in large part because they could be best positioned to acquire Davis, and suddenly would have the most valuable asset of all. There is a ton of hype around Williamson with many believing he could make an immediate impact in the league.

It also would not be ideal for the Grizzlies to get the No. 1 pick, because it would probably devalue the future first-round choice Boston will receive from Memphis.
