NBA draft lottery: Reaction around the league, and what's next

You don't need to follow the NBA closely to know that Sacramento is basketball Siberia, a franchise with an owner who has made many silly decisions in recent years, and a front office that appears clueless.

The NBA Draft is still over a month away, but after the annual Draft Lottery on Tuesday night we finally have the full draft order, which allows for plenty of speculation about what players will go where. It's basketball IQ. He's really unique and special at that age to understand the game well and to be a team player. As much as Vlade Divac loves to make insane out of the box decisions there are a number of bigs at the top of the draft to offer Divac plenty of choices.

The Nets finished with the eighth-worst record (28-54) - so the Cavs are picking exactly where they were supposed to.

Going forward, the three teams with the worst regular-season records will all have 14 percent chances of winning the No. 1 pick, the fourth-worst team will have a 12.5 percent chance and the fifth-worst 10.5 percent. Most recently, Ferdette can be seen lighting it up overseas in China.

Adding Ayton to a group that includes promising shooting guard Devin Booker, lottery representative Josh Jackson (last year's No. 4 pick) and 2016 lottery picks Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss would give the Suns young talent at four of the five positions, leaving point guard Phoenix's biggest weakness. The Suns can't go wrong selecting in either direction as they could use help at the two spectrums of their lineup.

Doncic and center Deandre Ayton out of Arizona are considered to be locks for the top two picks.

Salama also noted Mbandaka's proximity to neighboring countries, including Central African Republic and Republic of Congo . The WHO said the risk of the disease spreading was "high" and announced it was preparing for the "worst case scenario".

According to ESPN, it's the sixth time in franchise history the team got off to an 8-0 start at home, with the others 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986 and 2008. As usually, BetDSI Sportsbook has released the odds for the players that will have the highest chances of being selected as the overall No.1 pick in this year's draft.

The NBA Draft Lottery has been in places since 1985.

The Celtics should have another major draft pick in their future, after all. By threatening to pull out of this draft, Phoenix might agree to select him over Ayton beforehand.

But while some people believe the connection between new Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov and Luka Doncic, whom Kokoskov coached on the Slovenian national team, the indications from the lottery were that that's not going to play a part in the Suns' draft strategy.

With some more luck, Jackson won't be going to more lotteries.

Jimmer failed to become the star Sacramento wanted and the 10th overall pick was bought out of his rookie contract on February 27,2014.
