Running the risk of sounding dramatic, tonight is a night that could shape the Sixers franchise for years and, perhaps even, decades - good or bad. Tonight is the NBA Draft Lottery and the Sixers have a lot riding on the outcome.
The 76ers finished the regular season with a 19-63 record giving them the second best odds (19.9% chance) to win the No. 1 overall pick behind only the Milwaukee Bucks who have a 25.0% chance of landing the top pick. In addition to their own pick, the Sixers own the rights to the New Orleans Pelicans first round pick if it lands outside the top five. The Pelicans pick has a 96.1% chance of landing outside the top five and an 87.0% chance of being the 10th overall pick.
Below is a graphic for each of the pick scenarios for the 76ers.
