After having the worst record in the NBA this past season, winning just 21 games, the Phoenix Suns will select first overall for the upcoming NBA draft in June.

The Suns had the highest chance to earn the number one pick at 25 percent, marking the fourth straight year that the team with the highest chance to earn the first pick has won the lottery. The Memphis Grizzlies had the second-best chance at 19.9 percent and the Dallas Mavericks had the third-best at 13.8 percent. Both teams ended up dropping out of the top three picks, after the Sacramento Kings earned the second overall pick and the Atlanta Hawks earned the third. 

Assuming that Phoenix holds on to the number one pick, it will be the first time that the franchise selects first overall in any draft.
