For the second time in three years, the Cleveland Cavaliers landed the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

By virtue of posting the worst regular-season record in the NBA this past season, the Orlando Magic had the best chance (25%) of landing the No. 1 overall selection in the 2013 NBA Draft. Above the Magic in the NBA standings but directly behind them when it came to draft lottery odds were the Bobcats (19.9%), Cavaliers (15.6%), Suns (11.9%) and Pelicans (8.8%).
