NBA Draft Lottery 2012: Time, TV Schedule And More

New, comments

Tonight, the Pistons will be one of the 14 teams crossing their fingers, rubbing their lucky rabbit feet, etc., hoping to land the No. 1 overall pick and the right to draft #unibrow. The Pistons are currently in the No. 9 spot, so their odds are not good, but they're better than four other teams. They have a 6.1-percent chance of landing in the top three and a 1.7-percent chance of the No. 1 overall pick. The Pistons have a better chance of winding up with a pick worse than the No. 9. (After the jump is a chart I pulled from Wikipedia with all the odds.)

Brandon Knight will be the team's representative at the event.
