A handful of coin flips and May's draft lottery are still to come in deciding the final order for the 2013 NBA draft, but last night's results locked most of the draft standings in place, and resolved many of the situations we'd been watching coming into the day.
To view the final reverse standings, check out our complete list right here. Here are some items of note, based on last night's results:
- The Magic will have the best chance at the first overall pick after their loss last night. Their odds for No. 1 will be 25%. The Bobcats, who won three straight to finish the season, will have a 19.9% chance at the top pick.
- The Lakers' first-round pick, which will land between 18th and 20th, will be sent to the Cavaliers. The Suns, rather than receiving L.A.'s first-rounder, will get the Heat's 30th overall pick.
- Coin flips are still required to determine which team picks first in the following spots: 7th/8th (Pistons, Wizards); 11th/12th (Raptors, Sixers); 18th/19th/20th (Lakers, Bulls, Rockets); and 25th/26th (Clippers, Grizzlies).
- Last night's 13th straight loss by the Trail Blazers ensures that they'll keep their second-round pick, which was top-40 protected. It will be 40th overall.
