If history holds in the NBA draft lottery, the 76ers have already experienced the most significant jump in terms of positioning for the June draft.
Tied with Toronto for the 11th-worst record in the league at 34-48, the Sixers won a coin flip last month that relegated the Raptors to 12th.
Unless they are extremely lucky and move up, the Sixers will have the 11th selection in the June 27 draft. They will be represented at the draft lottery by majority owner Joshua Harris and CEO Adam Aron on Tuesday night in New York.
The Sixers are one of 14 teams in the lottery, the weighted system in which the NBA determines the order in which teams will draft. Orlando (20-62) has the best chance (25 percent) of winning the first overall pick, followed by Charlotte (19.9 percent) and Cleveland (15.6).
