NEW ORLEANS PELICANS BIG WINNERS IN 2019 NBA DRAFT LOTTERY

CHICAGO, IL

 

 

 

The NBA draft lottery took place Tuesday night before the start of game-1 of the Western Conference Finals. The NBA draft lottery could’ve easily been renamed the Zion Williamson lottery, as that was the grand prize every team was hoping to take home. The New Orleans Pelicans won the grand prize last night. I’m not a Knicks fan, but I was actually hoping Zion ended up in NY. With Anthony Davis still asking for a trade, I would rather have seen Zion in a big market city. If the Pelicans find a way to get AD to stay in New Orleans, then I can get excited about Zion heading there. AD, Zion, Jrue Holiday, with guys like Julius Randle thrown into the mix would be pretty exciting to see. Anyway, here’s the order for the top 10 picks in this years’ NBA draft:

 

  1. New Orleans Pelicans
  2. Memphis Grizzlies
  3. New York Knicks
  4. Los Angeles Lakers
  5. Cleveland Cavaliers
  6. Phoenix Suns
  7. Chicago Bulls
  8. Atlanta Hawks
  9. Washington Wizards
  10. Atlanta Hawks
