Cavs Earn Top Pick In NBA Draft
Posted May 22nd, 2013 @ 10:48am

(New York, NY)  --  The Cleveland Cavaliers have earned the top pick in the NBA Draft.  The Cavs had a 15.6-percent chance of landing the first overall pick in the NBA Draft Lottery in New York.  The Orlando Magic had the best odds at 25-percent.  The team with the worst record in the NBA has only captured the top spot three times in the history of the lottery.  It happened most recently with the 2004 Magic.  Only the top three picks are selected from the lottery slotting system, with the rest of the first-round draft order in inverse order of the win-loss record for the remaining teams.  The Magic earned the second pick, while the Washington Wizards grabbed the third pick.  Washington had the eighth-best odds at 3.5-percent.
