2022 NBA Draft: First Round Order Set After Lottery

The Chicago Bulls had a drama-free lottery night for the first time since 2017.

For the first time in five years, the Chicago Bulls could rest easy during the NBA Draft lottery. The Bulls, which heavily depended on the lottery to determine the franchise's future in years past, were without a selection after making the playoffs for the first time since the 2016-17 season. 

The Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic had the best odds for landing the top pick in the 2022 NBA Draft Lottery. However, it was the Magic whose ping-pong ball was picked first.
