    Milwaukee gets the top spot, followed by Atlanta and Portland.

    All 3 teams could use Andrew Bogut, with Atlanta the only team with an absolute void at PG, maybe the Bucks too depending on TJ Ford.

    How's that shoe feeling KStat?

    Poor Charlotte; I was wanting to see how a Chris Paul / Emeka Okafor combo would work.

    They already practically got two lottery picks last year in Brezec and Okafor...they're lucky enough.

    Exactly.

    #5 & #13 for #2, so they can draft Chris Paul.

    Atlanta always loves to deal on draft day, too.

    I definately think they'd deal #2 for #5 and #13. They need players right now, not stars.

    Milwaukee Wins NBA Lottery and Right to Draft No. 1 in June

    May 24, 9:17 PM (ET)

    By TOM CANAVAN
    SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) - After a season of injuries, the Milwaukee Bucks finally had something go right as they won the NBA lottery on Tuesday night and earned the right to pick first in the draft next month.

    The Bucks had only a 6.3 percent chance of winning the lottery, but a couple of lucky charms provided by fans and carried by general manager Larry Harris helped Milwaukee jump over five teams to win its first lottery since 1994, the year they took Glenn Robinson.

    Atlanta, which won a league-low 13 games and had the best chance of securing the No. 1 pick, will instead have the second choice in the June 28 draft.

    Portland made the other big move in the lottery, jumping from No. 5 to third.

    The big losers were New Orleans, Charlotte and Utah, which all dropped two spots in the order. The Hornets had the second best chance to win the lottery but they slipped to No. 4. The Bobcats, who also had the rights to Cleveland pick in the lottery, went from No. 3 to No. 5. Utah, which had the fourth worst record, fell to No. 6.

    The lottery didn't change picks seventh through 14 with Toronto, New York, Golden State, the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando, the Los Angeles Clippers, Charlotte and Minnesota keeping those spots.

    While there doesn't seem to be a Patrick Ewing, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan or LeBron James in the draft, there are good players at the center, forward and point guard positions.

    Utah center Andrew Bogut, North Carolina forward Marvin Williams and Wake Forest point guard Chris Paul have been mentioned as the three best players available. All three were among the list of 108 players who filed as early entry candidates.

    1] Milwaukee
    2] Atlanta
    3] Portland
    4] New Orleans
    5] Charlotte
    6] Utah
    7] Toronto
    8] New York
    9] Golden State
    10] L.A. Lakers
    11] Orlando
    12] L.A. Clippers
    13] Charlotte ----From Cleveland
    14] Minnesota

    I wouldn't say Portland needs Bogut; they have Pryzbilla, and Ratliff.

    Definently the Bucks need him though, and don't discount Maurice Williams as a good PG. They stole him from Utah last season.

    Not sure who they'll take, maybe someone can fill in the blanks but I can place needs on teams if things stay the same:

    Milwaukee- Center, SG if Redd leaves.
    Atlanta- Center, PG.
    Portland- SG, SF, PF (not sure what's up with Randolph)
    New Orleans- SF, PF
    Charlotte- PG, SG
    Utah- PG, SG
    Toronto- PG, SG/SF (to counteract Mo Pete), Center
    New York- Center, just better overall parts.
    Golden State- PF, C (they should trade the pick for more talent now)
    L.A Lakers- PG, C
    Orlando- SG, C
    L.A Clippers- Replacement for Bobby Simmons, PG
    Charlotte- As Above
    Minnesota- PG, C, SF/SG (need one)

    I think there are going to be an overload of PG's taken early, and luckily for these teams it seems the position is fairly strong.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    If Billy's smart, he'll take that deal. They need the bodies, and Deron Williams should still be around at 5.

    Deron Williams and Marvin Williams are the two lottery picks I really wish were on this team...

    Joey Graham and Ronnie Turiaf, for the lower portion of the draft...

    NBA Draft Analysis

    RealGM.com's Patrick J. Austin has done a case study of all of the draft's over the last decade, where he finds that there is an average of four All-Stars in each draft.

    Interesting Facts

    44 players have become all-stars, which averages out to be 4 all-stars a draft.

    63% of the time the Rookie of the Year has been selected with a top-3 draft choice.

    72% of the time the #1 overall draft choice has been either a power forward or center.

    Only 50% of #1 overall draft choices have averaged at least 20 points per game.

    Power forward has been the most drafted position with 23% of total selections.

    Center has been the least drafted position with 17% of total selections.
