Conn Smythe Watch Counting down top candidates for playoff MVP

After completion of the NBA play-in tournament, we now know the teams who'll be participating in the NBA draft lottery, giving us a better picture of the complete pick order for the 2024 NBA draft. 

The top two teams on the board and worst two teams in the league this season -- the Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards -- each have a 14% chance to land the No. 1 overall pick. The Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Hornets tied for the league's third worst record. The Pistons are just three years removed from having the top pick, when they selected Cade Cunningham in 2021. The Wizards last had the top pick in 2010 (John Wall), the Blazers last picked No. 1 in 2007 (Greg Oden) and the Hornets haven't landed the top pick since 1991 (Larry Johnson). 

Other teams that will be paying significant attention to the lottery are the Houston Rockets, Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors. The Raptors will send their pick (currently No. 6) to San Antonio if it falls lower than sixth. The Rockets and Warriors will both lose their picks unless they jump into the top four (though the Rockets also have the Nets' pick).

Here's an updated look at where every draft pick stands right now.
