Timberwolves Win 2015 NBA Draft Lottery

The Minnesota Timberwolves have won the NBA Draft Lottery for the first time ever. The Timberwolves finished with the worst record in the league and had a 25 percent chance of earning the top pick. This is the first time since the Orlando Magic in 2004 that the team with the worst record has won the lottery.

The Los Angeles Lakers also had a good night. Not only did the Lakers keep their top five protected pick, but they moved up to No. 2. The Philadelphia 76ers will pick third.

The loser of the night was the New York Knicks. The Knicks finished with the second-worst record in the league, but they dropped back to No. 4. New York will still have a chance at an excellent prospect, but the hope was to have a chance at one of the top two big men in Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor.
