The Pistons are entering one of their more important lotteries in franchise history on Wednesday night in New York City. The Pistons will be one of the 14 teams hoping that lady luck is on their side for a chance at the No. 1 overall pick of a fairly deep draft. The Pistons are currently in the No. 9 spot, so their odds are not good. They have just a 6.1-percent chance of landing in the top three and a 1.7-percent chance of the No. 1 overall pick.
Rising second year guard Brandon Knight will represent the Pistons at the lottery.
WHAT: 2012 NBA Draft Lottery
WHERE: Times Square, New York City
WHEN: May 30, 2012
TIME: 8 p.m. ET
After the lottery, Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Heat and Celtics will take place. The Heat are up 1-0 after a relatively easy Game 1 behind another 30-10 performance from LeBron James.
