Sixers' spots in draft set

The Sixers will have the 15th pick in June's NBA draft, the league announced today.

With a record of 35-31, the Sixers had the worst record among teams to make the playoffs, so they will select with the first pick after the 14 teams that are in the lottery.

In the second round, the Sixers will pick at No. 45 with their own pick and No. 54 with the pick acquired from Memphis in the Sam Young trade earlier this season.

The NBA broke seven ties today in order to set the draft order.

Here are the teams in lottery and their chances of out 1,000 to get the first pick. After the first three teams are identified via the lottery, the remaining 11 teams will pick in the inverse order of their record.

Washington (20-46), 199

Cleveland (21-45), 138

New Orleans (21-45), 138

Sacramento (22-44), 76
