Draft odds and the LAC pick


please help on the draft and the potential choices for the Cavs given that the team has LAC's pick

This is something that confuses me: everywhere I read that the Cavs have a 20% chance of getting the first pick (technically, it's 19.9% as the second worst team. But what ahoy the 2.9% chance that the Clippers' lottery pick ends up with the #1 selection? Didn't Cleveland get that pick too? Therefore, the odds are closer to 23%? Am I missing something from the trade or draft lottery rules?
