The Kings' 2018 NBA Draft positioning will be determined Tuesday night at the annual NBA Draft Lottery.

The NBA Draft Lottery is theater at its finest, rivaled only by the World Cup draw in terms of mining drama out of the selection of ping pong balls. Last year, it was Joel Embiid, in 2016 it was Brett Brown and 2015 was Nerlens Noel.

More likely outcomes are that the Magic will obtain the fifth pick (a 26.2 percent chance) or the sixth pick (a 35.9 percent chance). This is especially true in a year with some serious difference-makers available with lottery picks, such as DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and Jaren Jackson.

This overall core might be the best job the Celtics have ever done in using the draft to assemble a core of players, but they have one of the longest histories with some of the best draft picks of all time.

Throwing his weight behind Nawaz, PM Abbasi also reiterated his support for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid . They added that Ajmal Kasab's hurried execution is the main reason why the case still pending disposal.

The Phoenix Suns will have the best odds at landing the top pick after going 21-61 this season for the worst record in the National Basketball Association. Doncic would also be a nice fit next to Devin Booker in a league where every team wants multiple playmakers on the court at all times.

Historically, Sacramento has not landed a top three selection in the lottery since 1991 and has only ever secured the top spot in the draft just once (1989). They have not had the No. 1 pick since.

Over the years, this time of year has been exciting for the Sixers since their horrendous records always resulted in high draft picks, and even though they're coming off an impressive playoff run, Tuesday could still end up being a magical night. Frank Ntilikina, the No. 8 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, has the tools to become a two-way player once he develops. New York's new brain trust of head coach David Fizdale, Scott Perry and Steve Mills are looking to shape the team in their vision.
