The 2019-20 Washington Wizards season ended last Thursday. And with all of the seeding games in the Western Conference finished, and knowing that the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies had a better pre-coronavirus winning percentage than Washington, we now know that Washington has the ninth-best odds of winning the first overall draft pick.

The Draft Lottery will be held on Aug. 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET which will be televised on ESPN. Unlike past draft lotteries, everything will be virtual due to the coronavirus’ impact on our society.

The Wizards will likely finish ninth in the order. However, they could pick anywhere from first through fourth, but could also fall as low as 13th.
