The Orlando Magic won the lottery for the fourth time in franchise history and will pick first in June’s 2022 NBA draft.

Orlando had a 14% chance to get the top pick, along with the Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons.

It’s the Magic’s first chance to pick No. 1 overall since 2004, when they selected Dwight Howard. Orlando also won the lottery in back-to-back years in 1992 (Shaquille O’Neal) and 1993 (Chris Webber, who was traded to Golden State for Penny Hardaway and three future first-rounders).

The Oklahoma City Thunder will select at No. 2, the franchise’s first top-four pick since 2009, when it drafted James Harden. The Thunder also have a second lottery pick at No. 12 as a result of the trade that sent Paul George to the LA Clippers.

The Cavaliers will chose 14th.
