Wolves ready for draft lottery

Posted: Updated:

The NBA Draft Lottery takes place tonight and the Wolves currently hold the 9th overall selection in the draft based on their regular season record. This marks the 15th appearance the franchise has had in the Lottery and not once in the prior 14 times did they move up.

There is a 6.11% chance that the team could move up into the top-three selection. The odds include a 1.7% chance to get the number one overall selection, a 2% chance for number two and a 2.41% chance for the third selection. Statistically, the most likely result is they stay at number nine (81.31%)

The highest the Wolves have ever selected in the draft was back in 2011 when they took Derrick Williams with the second overall selection.
