On Tuesday night, the 14 teams who didn't make the playoffs will be hoping for good luck. Meanwhile, Michigan State forward Miles Bridges, Texas Tech 2-guard Zhaire Smith and Texas A&M big man Robert Williams could become quick fan favorites for whichever franchises select them. The team with the worst record have the best odds and the team with the best record among those that missed the postseason have the worst odds. We might not see another blockbuster like last year's swap between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics involving the No. 1 overall pick, but don't be surprised if some All-Star-caliber player winds up finding a new home. No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz never get off the bench for Philly in the conference semifinals, while No. 3 pick Jayson Tatum averaged over 20 a game and scored the winning basket in the decisive Game 5.

Pat Williams, a co-founder of the Magic, intends to carry the toy into Chicago's Palmer House Hilton for the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.
