NBA Draft Lottery: Pelicans’ odds and what to watch for

NBA Draft Lottery day is upon us and the New Orleans Pelicans have a 99.6 percent chance of landing a top-10 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

It’s a rare thing for a playoff team to also have a lottery pick, but this could be the case for several seasons as the Pelicans continue to reap the rewards of the Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday trades,

adding 1st-round picks to a team that is already expected to be a contender next season when Zion Williamson returns.

The pick comes courtesy of the Los Angeles Lakers, who did not even make the play-in and now have to hand their pick over to New Orleans.

It’s a luxury to be able to add a lottery pick to a team that is already good and the Pelicans could go in

any number of directions in the 2022 NBA Draft depending on where they end up landing.

Pelicans’ lottery odds: Can New Orleans do it again? Here are the Pelicans’ lottery odds for each pick:

– #1: 6% – #2: 6.3% – #3: 6.7% – #4: 7.2% – #8: 34.5% – #9: 32.1% – #10: 6.7%
