What to know about the NBA draft from Week 6
The NBA’s second-most watched sports league, the NBA has not had an open-market game since the 2004-05 season.
This season, the league is scheduled to begin open-to-the-public games.
With the start of the NBA’s NBA Draft lottery in 2018, ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported that the league may expand the games to include games in other countries, as well.
Goodman also reported that some teams may also use the lottery to increase ticket sales.
The draft lottery was designed to be a game-changing event, with teams that didn’t make the playoffs and teams that were already in the playoff hunt going into the draft to improve their odds.
Since the lottery was created in 2008, it has never had a repeat in the regular season.
The NBA had the highest percentage of open-and-closed games in the past decade.
Here is a look at some of the biggest stories from the first two rounds of the lottery: 1.
Cavs pick Anthony Davis is one of the best prospects in the draft.
With a 6-foot-9 wingspan and the ability to create for himself and teammates, Davis is a big-time athlete.
However, Davis will be competing with a plethora of other NBA prospects, including Duke’s Jalen Brunson, Kentucky’s Jabari Bird, Syracuse’s D’Angelo Russell, Utah’s Deandre Ayton and Washington’s Otto Porter Jr. Davis was one of four players selected ahead of James, who has said that the NBA is his No. 1 priority heading into the lottery.
The Nets are one of five teams to have won a lottery game.
The Bucks and Warriors have also been winners of lottery games, while the Knicks have won them in four straight seasons.
The Kings, Clippers and Spurs have all been winners in the first round of the draft, with all four winning it in 2017.
