The Knicks currently have the worst record in the NBA.

What pick are they most likely to get in the NBA draft?

With our luck, I'll say the 4th pick.

What I hope, #1 pick and trade it to OKC for KD. :D *dreams*

4th :(

I think it's something like...

1st: 25%
2nd: 22%
3rd: 18%
4th: 35%

But at least we have the highest chance of the 1st and are gonna end up with no less than the 4th pick in a 4 player draft. Assuming we finish with the worst record of course.

They're most likely to get the 4th pick at 36%. But that's the result of every other lottery team given some chance at picks 1-3.

They still have the best odds for a top 3 pick (64%) and best odds for 1st pick (25%).

Sixers fans have memorized the lottery odds/scenarios for all the bottom slots since last year. It's basically laser engrained in my head haha

I really love the fact that if we can end up with the worst record we have a 65% chance of drafting Okafor, Towns or Russell.

Mudiay as a worst case scenario really isn't bad as well.

I actually think they can all be franchise changing players in different ways.

They'll have a 100% chance of getting a top four pick. Fact.

I feel like you had to look that up...:)

In a vacuum it's pretty interesting to see of all the picks the worst pick is the most likely.

Not with the Lakers in the mix.

No way the Lakers end up with the worst record. They have 17 wins already and the Knicks are only on pace for 16 wins. To me it's either the Sixers or the Knicks. I think Minnesota is too talented not to scrape together a handful more wins down the straight.

I actually had been looking at it a few days ago! Stuck in my head because it's one of the only things us Knicks fans have to look forward to.

Yeah no way the Lakers are gonna end up with the worst record. Philly have a 2 game lead on us which is huge considering how tough it's been for the Knicks to scrape together wins.

The 2 games left between us and them will determine the standings I think. Although I can't see the Knicks beating the Sixers twice tbh. I really really hope Fisher tanks the **** out of the games against Philly and Minny. Losing all 3 of them will literally guarantee us a potential franchise changing player. Seems absolutely absurd to not hold back our best (Shved and Bargs?!) players in those games.

My Wolves currently have the 3rd worst record in the NBA.

They have statistically a ZERO percent chance at getting the #1 pick. The term, "Wolves" is like when you multiple any number by 0. It is always 0.

Lol. Both our teams would probably be better sliding back to #3 so we get "stuck" with Towns.

If minny gets the first pick then minny could start to look nice. Okafor, wiggins and Lavine. Nice young core who can grow together.
