Knicks guide if National Basketball Association draft lottery turns into nightmare

In an extensive, revealing, and terrific feature of Zion Williamson, SLAM Online gave its readers an inside look of the soon to be No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

There's plenty at stake this year, with Duke sensation Zion Williamson expected to be the No. 1 overall pick.

In the National Basketball Association, teams that don't make the playoffs all have a chance at landing the first pick in the draft by way of the draft lottery.

Also, would the Mavs choose to trade the pick?

Heading into the lottery, there is a 26.2 percent chance that the Grizzlies pick lands in the top-4, and a 31.2 percent chance at it being the No. 8 selection. In 2015, Boston sent Jeff Green to Memphis in a multi-team deal, and the biggest prize it received in return was a future first-round choice. Making a move for Davis first would only strengthen their chances of playing together and it could create a new National Basketball Association super-team. The Celtics will be waiting around anyways, though they'd prefer if the Kings pick is the only one they receive Tuesday night. "So, yes, I do believe I'm the best player". If the Knicks win, it will inevitably set off the rumor mill about a possible package deal to send the No. 1 pick to New Orleans for Davis, the disgruntled All-Star who is the eye of several teams.

There's no question that the best prospect heading into the draft is Duke forward Zion Williamson. In that case, the pick would go to the Philadelphia 76ers, and Boston would get Philly's pick at No. 24. Patrick Ewing will represent them and as a good luck charm, hoping to replicate that success from 34 years ago.

The Knicks are basically an empty slate from a roster perspective, though NY is being mentioned as a serious contender for Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

However, Zion is still the ultimate prize for the Bulls in this draft lottery.

Held annually since 1985, the Draft Lottery determines the order in which teams who did not make the playoffs will select in that year's NBA Draft.
