The Orlando Magic won this year’s NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday and have been awarded the No. 1 overall pick for the upcoming 2022 NBA Draft, which will take place June 23. Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons complete the top five picks.
This marks the Magic’s fourth overall Draft Lottery win and will be able to go ahead with the first pick of this year’s draft for the first time since selecting Dwight Howard in 2004. The franchise had previously won the lottery back to back in 1992 and 1993, selecting Shaquille O’Neal and Chris Webber, respectively.
“The fans, the organization, it’s so exciting,” Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley told ESPN. “It’s so much to look forward to with this organization and this group and this fan base, it’s gonna be special.”
