Mavericks NBA Mock Draft Zion Knicks Lakers Bulls fresh rumors

NBA Mock Draft Bulls Mavericks Lakers Knicks rumors

The Knicks picked the right year to tank in that Zion Williamson is the top prize. They also picked the wrong year to tank in that 2019 will be the first year that the worst overall team by record won’t have the best odds of landing the first overall pick.

In years prior, the team that finished with the worst record in the NBA had a 25 percent chance of landing at No. 1. Under the new anti-tank lottery rules, those odds have decreased to 14.0 percent. It’s a monumental drop-off. In fact the Cavs and Suns will have the same odds as the Knicks to nab No. 1 and the Bulls will still have a 12.5 percent shot. Even a team like the Wizards will have a 9 percent chance at landing Zion despite finishing with the sixth worst record.

No doubt, there will be considerable movement at the top of the draft.

For the sake of randomness, we used the Tankathon.com Draft Lottery simulator 10 times and wound up with the following order. It’s the Bulls jumping to No. 1 and the Knicks falling to No. 4.

We also looked at how likely it was that the Lakers would jump to the top spot and no doubt it will be difficult. Using the lottery simulator, we didn’t have the Lakers getting the No. 1 overall pick until the 48th time we used it.

Here is a two round mock based on the order we saw most.
