Wizards to pick ninth in 2019 NBA Draft

By Zach Rosen | @ZacharySRosen

Following Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago, the Washington Wizards will pick ninth in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Under the new lottery odds, the Wizards entered Tuesday with the sixth-best chance to win the number one pick. They fell back three spots to nine after three teams jumped into the top four.

New Orleans, Memphis, New York, and the Los Angeles Lakers rounded out the top four. All three teams but the Knicks had lower odds than the Wizards to move into the top four. The top four is picked by ping pong combinations, while the rest of the order is determined by reverse standings.
