NBA Draft 2016: Lottery odds set, final draft order nearly in place

With the NBA regular season officially over, the odds for the 14 lottery teams are set and the order of the rest of the draft is nearly in place.

Following a 10-72 season, the Philadelphia 76ers have the best odds at the No. 1 overall pick at 25 percent, followed by the Lakers at 19.9 percent and the Celtics (via the Nets) at 15.6 percent. 

Here is a full chart that includes all the odds for the non-playoffs teams to get the No. 1 overall pick. 

2016 NBA Draft Lottery Odds
Order Team Odds No. 1 Odds Top 3
1 Philadelphia 76ers 25% 64.3%
2 Los Angeles Lakers 19.9% 55.8%
3 Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets ) 15.6% 46.9%
4 Phoenix Suns 11.9% 37.8%
5 Minnesota Timberwolves 8.8% 29.1%
6 New Orleans Pelicans 6.3% 21.5%
7 Denver Nuggets (via New York Knicks ) 4.3% 15%
8 Sacramento Kings 1.9% 6.8%
9 Toronto Raptors (via Denver Nuggets ) 1.9% 6.8%
10 Milwaukee Bucks 1.8% 6.5%
11 Orlando Magic 0.8% 2.9%
12 Utah Jazz 0.7% 2.5%
13 Phoenix Suns (via Washington Wizards ) 0.6% 2.2%
14 Chicago Bulls 0.5% 1.8%

It's worth noting that neither Sacramento nor the Raptors can actually receive the No.1 overall pick due to trades involving swap rights. If the Raptors' selection wins the lottery, it goes to the Nuggets as part of a series of trades involving those two teams and the Knicks. If the Kings' selection finishes ahead of the 76ers pick, the two teams will swap selections as part of the Nik Stauskas deal last offseason.

Also, if the Lakers fall out of the top-three, they will lose their selection to Philadelphia.

Here then is the current order for Nos. 15 through 60, subject to change based on lottery results.
