Posted May 21, 2013 12:53 PM

NEW YORK -- Four ties among teams that finished the 2012-13 NBA regular season with identical records were broken today through random drawings to help determine the order of selection for the 2013 NBA Draft, which will be held on Thursday, June 27.

The drawings were conducted earlier today in New York City by Jason Cahilly, NBA executive vice president, strategy and chief financial officer, and Dan Rube, NBA senior vice president and deputy general counsel. The tiebreaker process was overseen by Denise Pelli, a partner in the accounting firm of Ernst & Young.

The results of the drawings:

Detroit (29-53) won a tiebreaker with Washington.

Philadelphia (34-48) won a tiebreaker with Toronto.

Houston (45-37) won a tiebreaker with Chicago and the L.A. Lakers; the Lakers then won a tiebreaker with Chicago.

• L.A. Clippers (56-26) won a tiebreaker with Memphis.

Below is the order of selection for the 2013 NBA Draft, as well as the number of chances for teams in the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery, to be held on Tuesday, May 21.

The teams entered in the lottery, to be held on May 21, 2013, are as follows in yellow (note: the first three picks in the Draft will be determined by the lottery and the remainder of the "lottery teams" will select in positions 4-14 in inverse order of their consolidated standings at the end of the regular season):

Please note that teams that finished the regular season with identical records will select in the second round in the reverse of the order in which they select in the first round, provided, that if more than two teams are tied, then, as among the tied teams, each tied team will select one position earlier than it selected in the first round, except that the tied team that selected earliest in the first round shall, among the tied teams, select latest in the second round.

Picks 37 & 38 and Picks 41 & 42: With respect to the ties between Detroit and Washington (29 and 53; 0.354 pct.); and Philadelphia and Toronto (34 and 48; 0.415 pct.): since the order of selection in the first round for this set of teams may change based on the results of the Draft Lottery, the order of selection in the second round cannot be determined until after the Draft Lottery is conducted (on May 21, 2013).
