    Oops. I thought the ping pong balls were split between tied teams.

    They are, but if no one moves up in the lottery this determines the order. It matters for the Pelicans' pick, and it also matters for the Celtics' picks, as those two teams will be in trade discussions. Plus it will determine the prelottery odds for whether Boston's Memphis pick conveys this year, or rolls forward and gains value.

    So, we’ll still have the same odds as Dallas and Memphis after, it just determines if we don’t jump ahead. Got it.

    Apparently the time above was inaccurate. It should be about an hour later.

    Memphis is 8th, so unless someone leaps them, they will keep the pick, making the 1st round pick that Boston has to trade us from Memphis more valuable.

    So if things stay as they are, and the Pels trade for BOS/MEM pick, the Peas could have 7 and 8. That would be awesome if the two picks turned out to be star players.

    Thank goodness for the 7th pick. Obviously it's not perfect Nd we could have had 6th, but as tie breakers go this is very positive
    Watching Pelicans games is what Georges Bataille meant by limit experiences.

    Memphis pick is top 8 protected. So, if it stays the same, Memphis keeps the pick.

    Incorrect. We would have to pry the 2021 Memphis pick from Boston.

    Wait so it’s official? We got the 7th pick but were slotted to get 8 correct?

    Is it top 6 or 8 protected? Can anyone verify

    ^^^ Top 8 this year, top 6 in 2020, unprotected in 2021.

    We get 7 unless some one leaps us.
