Again, we get some peak chaos. The odds of the Wizards going to No. 1, for instance, is 4.5% and the Kings’ odds of landing the No. 3 pick is a mere 1.5%. However, the Cavs have a 27.8% chance of ending up at No. 5 — the team’s most-likely outcome.

That said, in this outcome, we’ll go James Wiseman at No. 1, Anthony Edwards at No. 2, LaMelo Ball at No. 3 and then Devin Vassell ata No. 4. That leaves the Cavs to take Isaac Okoro at No. 5.
