This will be the 19th time the Wolves have participated in the draft lottery and the third time they go in with the best odds of winning the No. 1 pick. The first two times were misses:
1992: Third in the lottery. Drafted Christian Laettner after Shaquille O’Neal (pictured) and Alonzo Mourning.
2011: Second in the lottery. Drafted Derrick Williams after Kyrie Irving.
