The 2019 NBA Draft Lottery went down Wednesday night in Chicago, Illinois, as basketball fans across the league waited anxiously to see who would come away with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft and the inside track to landing Duke basketball star Zion Williamson.
And it was it quite the wild night.
The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns entered the night with the best odds to land the No. 1 pick at 14 percent, but it was none of those teams that walked away with the top pick.
Instead, the Knicks landed pick No. 3, the Cavs received No. 5, and the Suns will pick at No. 6.
The winners of the No. 1 pick, meanwhile, were the New Orleans Pelicans.
