After completion of the NBA play-in tournament, we now know the teams who’ll be participating in the NBA draft lottery, giving us a better picture of the complete pick order for the 2023 NBA draft.

There are still plenty of ties to be broken, which will determine better odds for the lottery teams and final pick order for the picks outside the top 14.

The top three teams on the board and worst three teams in the league this season — the Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs — each have a 14% chance to land the No. 1 overall pick and the chance to draft Victor Wembanyama. The Pistons are just two years removed from having the top pick, when they selected Cade Cunningham in 2021. The Rockets last had the top pick in 2002 (Yao Ming), and the Spurs haven’t landed the top pick since 1997 (Tim Duncan).

Other teams that will be paying significant attention to the lottery are the Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks. The Bulls will send their pick (currently No. 11 or 12) to Orlando unless it jumps into the top four, while Dallas — currently slotted at No. 10 — will send its pick to New York if it falls out of the top 10 after the lottery.

Here’s an updated look at where every draft pick stands right now.
