NBA Draft Lottery 2013: Detroit Pistons Lose One Spot

The Detroit Pistons lose one spot in the NBA Draft lottery and are drafting 8th overall.  That is because the Washington Wizards jumped from the 8th spot to number 3. The Cleveland Cavaliers landed the top pick for the second time in 3 years despite having only a 15.9% chance of doing so.  The Orlando Magic dropped to number 2 with the Wizards in the third spot.

So that means the Pistons draft eighth in the 2013 NBA Draft. This will be the fourth consecutive year the Pistons will be drafting in the lottery, the longest such stretch in franchise history.  Hopefully Joe Dumars and company can get what they need to get the Detroit Pistons out of this cycle of losing seasons.

Here is a look at the rest of the NBA Draft Lottery results:

1. Cleveland Cavaliers
2. Orlando Magic
3. Washington Wizards
4. Charlotte Bobcats
5. Phoenix Suns
6. New Orleans Pelicans
7. Sacramento Kings
