A Look at The 2013 NBA Draft Order

Cleveland Cavaliers Draft
For the second time in three years, the Cleveland Cavaliers organization claimed the No. 1 overall pick. They just gained the top pick for the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery on 22 May 2013 after choosing star point guard Kyrie Irving being their selection in 2011.

The Cavs, who finished the 2012-13 season with a 24-58 record, entered the lottery with the third-best chances of snagging the first selection at 15.6 percent. The Orlando Magic entered the lottery with the best chances of securing the top pick. They ended up with the second pick, likely giving them a shot at any player not named Nerlens Noel.

The Washington Wizards had just a 3.5 percent chance of drafting first, although they still managed to move up to the third spot. The rest of the lottery order held to form for the most part. The Charlotte Bobcats dropped from two to four, but there was very little unexpected movement besides that.
