Sacramento awaits its positioning along with 13 other teams as the NBA Draft Lottery takes place on Tuesday evening in New York. Each team in attendance brings with it a hope for good fortune, as each will be represented by a person of their respective organization’s choosing.

For Sactown, head coach Dave Joerger will be representing the squad. In 2016’s NBA Draft Lottery, the Kings maintained their slotted No. 8 pick, trading and acquiring additional picks that would turn into Georgios Papagiannis, Malachi Richardson and Skal Labissiere. This season, the team is in place to select the No. 8 and No. 10 overall in June’s draft with an 8.2% chance at a top three selection.

In Sacramento's lottery history, the team has moved up just once, winning the number one pick in 1989.
