  • Magic hope to find luck in 2018 NBA Draft Lottery

The Nuggets have the worst odds (0.5 percent) to land the top selection at Tuesday night's National Basketball Association draft lottery in Chicago, which will set the order for the picks happening June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Because Orlando finished with the NBA's fifth-worst record, it will have an 8.8 percent chance of winning the lottery, a 9.6 percent likelihood of receiving the second pick and 10.7 percent odds of picking third.

Originally as individual envelopes stuffed with a card holding the logo of each non-playoff team all shuffled around in a bingo ball spinner, the NBA's draft lottery system has since gone through multiple variations as it has been refined and made more "fair" to the league's worst teams.

Hoping to land its next star, the Orlando Magic are dusting off an old friend for Tuesday's NBA Draft: Lil' Penny.

Penny Hardaway sits next to his alter-ego Lil' Penny as part of a 90s Nike sneaker campaign. If the pick is first overall, it goes to Philly and the Celtics will receive Sacramento's selection next year.

The Magic won the lottery in 1992 (and picked O'Neal), 1993 (and picked Webber and traded him for Hardaway and three future first-round picks) and 2004 (and selected Dwight Howard). Since then, their lottery picks have consisted of a mixed bag of Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, Domantas Sabonis and Jonathan Isaac. The No. 20 pick is via Oklahoma City.
