The 2019 NBA Draft will consist of a new set of odds featured in this year's draft lottery.
The NBA Board of Governors approved a change in 2017, effective for the first time in 2019, to change the odds of the worst three records in the NBA.
Under the new system, the teams with the three worst records will share the same chance (14.0 percent) at receiving the No.1 overall pick. It also assures that the team with the worst record in the NBA will receive no worse than the No. 5 overall pick. Under the modified NBA Draft Lottery format, each team will be assigned the following odds:
|Team||Odds for No. 1 pick|
