The Utah Jazz won a drawing Friday and will enter the NBA Draft lottery with a 10.4 percent chance to get the No. 1 pick.
Utah and Boston tied for the fourth-worst record in the league this season (25-57), necessitating the drawing. By winning, the Jazz will own 104 of the 1,000 ping-pong balls in the lottery on May 20. The Celtics will have 103.
Milwaukee enters the lottery with 250 ping-pong balls, followed Philadelphia (199) and Orlando (156).
After Utah and Boston, the teams rounding out the lottery and their number of ping-pong balls include the L.A. Lakers (63), Sacramento (43), Detroit (28), Cleveland (17), New Orleans (11) and Denver (8).
