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.
Looking at the graphic, some fans might be alarmed to see the Sixers have a 31.9% chance of landing the fourth overall pick. On the surface that might be concerning but I suggest looking at it a different way. The Sixers have a 55.8% chance of landing in the top three pick.
All of this will be decided on May 20th.
