New Orleans Pelicans Lottery Day Discussion Thread

Published: May 21, 2013

Today can unofficially be deemed the first day of the New Orleans Pelicans offseason, as the first domino is set to fall down at 7:30 tonight. The Pelicans own an 8.8% chance at securing the first overall pick in the 2013 draft and have a 55.3% chance of drafting in the top five. As Ryan Schwan has pointed out, a top five pick is more likely than not going to produce a player that is either a good starter or a star, so history says that securing a top five pick likely bodes well for the Pelicans.

The Pelicans draft odds are below. Sign up for Livefyre and leave your predictions below as to what pick you think we will get and who you think we will take with that pick. Anybody who guesses both will be in the running for a very special prize!
