How to Watch the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery Online Today



One lucky NBA team is about to hit the lottery. The 2024 NBA Draft Lottery presented by State Farm is taking place today to determine which of the 14 teams who missed out on the NBA Playoffs will get first dibs at the fresh talents joining the league next season.

While 14 teams enter the event with a chance to land the No. 1 pick, not everyone has the same odds of winning. Ping-pong balls numbered 1 through 14 will be placed in a lottery machine, meaning there are 1,001 possible combinations when four balls are drawn out of 14. Teams are assigned four-number combinations ahead of the drawing and those with worse records this season hold more combinations today.

The team that has been assigned the lucky combination will receive the top pick. This process then gets repeated three more times to determine the first four picks in the NBA Draft. Then, the other lottery teams will continue to pick in inverse order of their regular-season record. Get ready because the lottery results will all be revealed soon. 

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery online this afternoon, including the start time, teams and the best odds.
