     Drawings were conducted earlier today in New York at the Board of Governors meeting and the Wizards won their tiebreaker with the Los Angeles Clippers.

     That means the Wizards will have 178 chances of winning the top pick in the NBA lottery, which will take place on May 19. Sacramento, who finished last in the league with a 17-65 record, will have 250 chances out of 1,000 of winning the top pick and the CLippers, who like Washington finished with a 19-63 record, will have 177 chances.


     Oklahoma City (23-59) will have 119 chances and Minnesota (24-58) will have 76. The number decreases along the line with the last team in the lottery (Phoenix) getting five chances.
