NBA Draft Lottery results: Cleveland Cavaliers receive 1st overall pick in 2014 NBA Draft

USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers once again got supremely lucky and will have the 1st pick in the NBA Draft.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be picking 1st overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.

The Cavs came into the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery with just a 1.7% chance of winning the first overall pick and an overwhelming chance to stay in their slotted place and receive the 9th overall pick. But David Griffin is apparently a magical sorcerer and the Cavs won the lottery anyway.

This means that the Cavs now have a chance to draft one of the top prospects such as Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, or Jabari Parker.

There also seems to be a pretty good chance that the Cavs look to trade their first round pick this year. It's David Griffin's first year as general manager and Cleveland already has a very young team. They might be better off trading the pick for a veteran to add to the current team. If that's the route that they decide to go, the first pick should have considerable value throughout the league.

Here's the complete draft order of the 2014 lottery:

1. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

2. Milwaukee Bucks

3. Philadelphia 76ers

4. Orlando Magic

5. Utah Jazz

6. Boston Celtics

7. Los Angeles Lakers

8. Sacramento Kings

9. Charlotte Hornets

10. Philadelphia 76ers (via New Orleans Pelicans)

11. Denver Nuggets

12. Orlando Magic (via Denver Nuggets)

13. Minnesota Timberwolves

14. Phoenix Suns
