The 2018 NBA Draft lottery is in the books: The Suns claimed the top spot, the Kings jumped way up to No. 2, and the Hawks leapfrogged the Boston won’t select in the 2018 lottery but they were tangential winners for two reasons. First, hindsight shined favorably on the timing of the Irving trade.

Phoenix Suns

After a 21-61 season, the Suns entered the lottery with a 25 percent chance to land the top pick, which worked out as the franchise will be the first on the clock on June 21.

They have needs all over their roster, and will now face a tough decision as it seems to be a neck-and-neck race between DeAndre Ayton and Luka Doncic for the top spot. Both players have a local connection as Ayton completed his one-and-done year at Arizona, and Doncic having been a member of the Slovenian national team under new head coach Igor Kokosov. - Mitch Robson

After last night's lottery , the entire 2018 NBA Draft order is now decided - who came out of it best?

Sacramento Kings

The clear winner of the lottery was the long-suffering Kings, who shot up from an original lottery position of seventh to land the No. 2 pick. The talent available to them lines up with Sacramento's needs, too - any of Ayton, Doncic, Marvin Bagley III, Michael Porter, or Mohamed Bamba would be good fits. But the Kings need to nail this one. - John Chick

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers are gearing up for a massive summer in which they are expected to chase LeBron James, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard, so they need all the assets they can get.

Keeping the No. 10 pick - by way of the Los Angeles Lakers - instead of forfeiting it to the Boston Celtics not only saves Bryan Colangelo some face, but it gives the Sixers another bullet in the chamber. That pick could be used in a potential package for Leonard, for example. - William Lou

The 2018 NBA Draft lottery is over and the draft order is officially set. The Kings climb all the way up and land the No. 2 overall pick while the Hawks round out the top three. Here are the winners and losers

Losers

Memphis Grizzlies

After shutting down Mike Conley and Tyreke Evans for the majority of the season in an effort to compile 60 losses, the Grizzlies were hoping their top-three odds would land them a standout player that could contribute on the road back to the playoffs next year.

Unfortunately for Memphis, it slid down to the fourth pick and will most likely be tasked with picking the right big man out of a group that includes Bagley III, Wendell Carter Jr., Jaren Jackson Jr., and Bamba. - Robson

Sacramento Kings (again)

They need to nail this year's pick because there's a fairly good chance they'll lose next year's selection.

The Celtics have the right to choose between the Kings' and 76ers' 2019 first-round picks, and a rebuilding Sacramento squad is all but certain to finish with a worse record than Philly. It remains No. 1-protected for the Kings, but anything beyond that would go to Boston - that means odds are good they will lose their selection in a draft that should feature R.J. Barrett, Zion Williamson, Cameron Reddish, and Nassir Little.

Australian wins lottery twice in a week

  Australian wins lottery twice in a week Talk about lucky. A stunned Sydney man who was celebrating an Australian lottery windfall could not believe it when he won again less than a week later. The unidentified man, in his 40s and from the suburb of Bondi, picked up Aus$1,020,487 (US$770,000) on Monday last week and then scooped another Aus$1,457,834 on Saturday."I just thought this is too good to be true," he told NSW Lotteries Monday after being informed of his good fortune."The chances of winning twice in such a short period of time must be non-existent. I wish I had some advice to others on how to win the lottery, but I don't.

Tanking won't help them land No. 1 next season either. For the 2019 lottery, the three-worst teams in the NBA will have an equal 14 percent chance of landing the top pick. - Chick

Dallas Mavericks

Karma came back to bite Mark Cuban in the butt, as his Mavericks held the third-best lottery odds, only to land the fifth pick.

Cuban paid a hefty $600,000 fine for publicly admitting to tanking, as if it wasn't entirely obvious based on the shenanigans on the floor. The Mavericks competed for most of three quarters, then head coach Rick Carlisle would routinely submarine his own team's chances by playing his worst lineups in the fourth quarter. They also wasted the penultimate season of Dirk Nowitzki's career, all for a chance to draft a B-grade prospect like Bamba or Jackson. - Lou

Keeping Up With the Joneses: Neighbours of Lottery Winners Are More Likely to Go Bankrupt .
<p>Seeing someone else get rich puts people into spending mode</p>“The larger the dollar magnitude of a lottery prize of one individual in a very small neighborhood, the more subsequent bankruptcies there will be from other individuals in that neighborhood,” says the latest version of a working paper from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia by Sumit Agarwal of Georgetown University, Vyacheslav Mikhed of the Philadelphia Fed, and Barry Scholnick of the University of Alberta. It’s titled: “Does the Relative Income of Peers Cause Financial Distress? Evidence from Lottery Winners and Neighboring Bankruptcies.
