NBA Lottery live results: Updates as team selection order is announced

The 2018 NBA Draft lottery wasn’t the most exciting, but there were some twists. The draft order isn’t what we thought it would be, save for the Suns keeping the No. 1 pick.

Here are the results:

Phoenix Suns

Looks like Luka Doncic might be headed to Phoenix.

2. Sacramento Kings

Not bad for the Kings! They were expected to have the No. 7 pick.

3. Atlanta Hawks

Hawks moved up from No. 4. Not bad!

4. Memphis Grizzlies

Oh you poor, poor Grizz fans.

5. Dallas Mavericks

HAWKS MOVE INTO THE TOP 3!

6. Orlando Magic

Welp.

7. Chicago Bulls

KINGS MOVE UP TO THE TOP 3!

8. Cleveland Cavaliers

Dang 🙁

9. New York Knicks

The Kristaps/Luka dream is dead.

10. Philadelphia 76ers via Los Angeles Lakers

Philly gets this pick instead of the Celtics! Boston could’ve had it if it was the No. 2 or No. 3 pick overall, but Philly strikes gold again.

11. Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte needs to hit this pick big.

12. Los Angeles Clippers via Detroit Pistons

L.A. gets back-to-back picks. They need someone to replace Blake Griffin.

13. Los Angeles Clippers

Yeah, that. ^

14. Denver Nuggets

No surprises here.

The 2018 NBA Draft lottery will decide the top 14 selections in the draft on Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. ET, ahead of the Cavaliers and Celtics Eastern Conference Finals Game 2. The Suns have the best odds to land the No. 1 pick, with a 25 percent chance, followed by the Grizzlies at 19.9 percent, Mavericks at 13.8 percent, Hawks at 13.7 percent and Magic at 8.8 percent.

This post will be updated live throughout the lottery reveal.

This year, teams likely want to snag the top overall pick for either Arizona center Deandre Ayton or Slovenian forward Luka Doncic, who are the consensus top-2 prospects. Ayton is a seven-foot big, who is a force on the boards and the interior, and has shown some semblance of shooting promise. Doncic is a do-it-all point forward who has starred for Real Madrid, the team considered to be the best outside of the NBA.

Our most recent mock draft by Ricky O’Donnell randomly selected the Bulls to land the top pick, and they selected Luka Doncic.

Here are the odds for each team in the lottery to land each pick in the draft:
