The New Orleans Pelicans could lose Anthony Davis this offseason, but they’ll gain Zion Williamson after winning the 2019 NBA draft lottery on Tuesday in Chicago.The Pelicans entered the night with the tied-for-seventh-best odds of landing the No. 1 pick (6 percent). Lady Luck smiled down upon executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin.
Many expect Davis to be out the door after he requested a trade ahead of the Feb. 7 trade deadline. In Williamson, the Pelicans will have a player around whom they can build for the long term.Some fans thought the fix was in when both the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers climbed into the top four. The Knicks weren’t a big surprise since they had a 52.1 percent chance of getting a top-four selection. The Lakers, on the other hand, only had 9.4 percent odds.
