The San Antonio Spurs know exactly where they’re picking in the 2020 NBA Draft.
This shouldn’t be a surprise by any means, San Antonio had a 77.6 percent chance of landing the 11th pick. It wouldn’t take a world-renowned mathematician or a psychic to tell you that that’s where they were probably going to end up. No, the surprises were with how the rest of the lottery shook out.
One of the biggest surprises, the Minnesota Timberwolves lucked out with their 14 percent chance at the top pick by securing the first selection in the draft. They had the same odds as the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers but any Wolves fan would have told you that they were less than optimistic about the team’s chances heading into Thursday night.
Another shocker, the Charlotte Hornets will be able to move up and pick third in the order. Michael Jordan‘s Hornets had just a 6.7 percent chance of landing this pick so the odds were against them. They’ve been drafting well as of late and will have a great opportunity to continue with that trend.
With the exact lottery order sorted out, here is our most recent mock draft for the lottery-bound teams.
