NBA Draft Lottery 2020 Explains: Up to date Odds For Every Staff To Win # 1 General Decide

The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery was originally supposed to take place in May along with the Combine, but the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic kept all draft-related events on hold for months as the league scrambled to adjust its key off-season events.

Now that the regular season is over, we finally know which teams will keep their fingers crossed in hopes of landing a high draft pick.

This year’s draft class doesn’t have any Zion Williamson-level talent, but there are some interesting prospects. Depending on the teams near the top of the drafting board, picks can quickly become commodities.

Everything you need to know about the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery is here, including the latest odds for each team involved.

When is the NBA Draft Lottery in 2020?

The 2020 NBA draft raffle will be held virtually on August 20th and will be shown on ESPN after Game 2 between the Bucks and the Magic is completed.
