  • The Magic are taking Lil' Penny to the draft lottery

Gilbert, now 21, has represented the Cavaliers at the NBA's Draft Lottery a few times, and will handle the honors again on Tuesday night in Chicago.

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

Lil' Penny, who was part of a Nike advertising campaign in the 1990s with former Magic star Anfernee Hardaway, will be accompanying Magic co-founder Pat Williams during the National Basketball Association draft lottery Tuesday night. Last year, it was Joel Embiid, in 2016 it was Brett Brown and 2015 was Nerlens Noel. If it's No. 1 or it doesn't rise, the Philadelphia 76ers will have the pick.

The Phoenix Suns had the worst record in the league during the regular season, so they have the best chance of winning (25 percent) the No. 1 overall draft pick as a result.

The top players in this year's draft class are commonly thought to be Arizona big man Deandre Ayton, Real Madrid guard Luka Doncic or bigs Marvin Bagley III of Duke, Mohamed Bamba of Texas and Jaren Jackson Jr. of Michigan State.

They Celtics have successfully built teams in every way possible, but every single top core has always involved at least one top player being draft, and leading the team in a special way.

How does the Draft Lottery work?

They have not had the No. 1 pick since. Most likely, the Nuggets will receive the 14th overall pick, where prospects such as Texas A&M center Robert Williams, Kentucky small forward Kevin Knox and Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander could be available for selection.

Including 1985, the Knicks have selected in the top 10 nine times.

Should the Kings stay put at No. 7, it would mark the 7th time in the lottery era where they have ended up with that selection. Oladipo, the best of the bunch, isn't with the team anymore.
