Teams that missed the playoffs will learn their standing in the draft order Tuesday night, as team representatives will gather in Chicago for the annual NBA Draft Lottery.

The Phoenix Suns will have the best odds at landing the top pick after going 21-61 this season for the worst record in the National Basketball Association.

"It's our version of a lucky penny".

This year, the Magic will rely on a decades-old, talking Lil' Penny doll. Inasmuch as you believe in lucky totems, they probably can only do much good if they're present for the actual event in quetion. And get a full breakdown of the lottery odds here. For everybody else, there is real hope that this could be a franchise-changing evening. If it's No. 1 or it doesn't rise, the Philadelphia 76ers will have the pick. The team will have an 8.4 percent chance of receiving the seventh pick and a 0.4 percent chance of receiving the eighth pick. They have a 6.1 percent chance of moving into the top four, which would give them a shot at a transcendent talent such as DeAndre Ayton, Luka Doncic, Marvin Bagley III or Mohamed Bamba.

However, if the Sixers do end up getting the Lakers pick this year, this would mean the Celtics end up with the first-round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2019, which based off their previous records over the years could work wonders. (And some people know the results, this isn't a Schrodinger's lottery ball situation.) But while Dan Gilbert's kid remains the gold standard (back-to-back wins, although one was Anthony Bennett) the Orlando Magic are a strong contender this year, especially if you're a 90s kid.

Since 2013, the Magic have used their own lottery picks to select Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, Domantas Sabonis and Jonathan Isaac. The No. 20 pick is via Oklahoma City.

In 2015, the Magic relocated him from the dais to the secluded room where the pingpong balls are drawn from the lottery machine.
