How does the NBA Draft work?

There are two rounds in the NBA Draft. On the day of the draft, each of the 30 NBA teams gets a pick per round. A total of 60 players are selected in every NBA Draft. 

The first 14 picks are selected by the NBA Draft Lottery to provide leverage to the teams who failed to make the NBA Playoffs in the previous regular season.

The NBA Draft Lottery was introduced to prevent teams from losing intentionally to get a higher pick in the NBA Draft.

The remaining 16 picks are thereafter decided by the last regular season’s standings in the opposite order. To put things into perspective, the team with the best record last season will get the 30th pick, the team with the 2nd best record will get the 29th pick, and so on. 

Similarly, teams pick players in the reverse order for the second round of the NBA Draft. There is no Lottery system.
