The 2019 NBA Playoffs are about to enter the Conference Finals, but there will now be one eye on the offseason this evening with the Draft picks set to be finalised in the lottery.Zion Williamson is seen as the biggest prize and is expected to be selected with the No 1 overall pick, but players such as Ja Morant and RJ Barrett have also been backed to become superstars in the NBA.
The NBA changed the format of the lottery this year to try and prevent teams from tanking, meaning there is more of a chance the No 1 pick wont necessarily go to the franchise with the worst record.The lottery could have huge ramifications for what happens in the offseason, with trades usually happening on draft night.
