The Washington Wizards have the second best chance to get the No. 1 overall draft pick at the NBA Draft Lottery in May. How good of a chance do they have numbers wise?

The NBA Draft Lottery is scheduled for May 30 in Seacaucus, N.J. The Washington Wizards, despite the strong regular season finish with a six game winning streak, did not have their draft status hurt. They have the second best chance out of 14 teams in the Draft Lottery to get the No. 1 overall draft pick. Presumably to select Kentucky forward Anthony Davis.

The Wizards are assured of no worse than the No. 5 overall draft pick and have a 55.8 percent chance of winding up in the top three.

The Charlotte Bobcats have the best chance to wind up with the overall number one pick with 25 percent of the ping pong balls that will be drawn at the Draft Lottery.
