NBA draft lottery 2019, Schedule, odds and everything to know, Zion Williamson in high demand, how to watch and how it works. The future for one NBA franchise will change drastically on Tuesday, with the league holding its draft lottery in Chicago.

Those ping pong balls have mattered before to rebuilding NBA teams looking to reinvigorate their fan bases with the coveted No. 1 pick. But this year is different because former Duke superstar and presumptive No. 1 pick Zion Williamson projects as a perennial All-Star and potential top-five player in the league.

For the first time, the top four spots will be determined by the lottery, rather than the top three. That additional factor, plus potential trade scenarios, have juiced the stakes. Williamson enters the draft as the most coveted prospect since LeBron James, and that’s not an exaggeration.
