CHICAGO – The NBA Draft Lottery did not reveal any change in the Charlotte Hornets’ draft positioning, keeping their pick in the 13th spot in the 2022 NBA Draft.
Charlotte also owns the 15th overall selection, which came from the New Orleans Pelicans in the deal which sent former Hornets guard Devonte’ Graham to NOLA.
The ping-pong balls were squarely against the Hornets moving up or down, as they had a 92% chance to stay where they were, and only a 4.79% chance to grab a pick in the top four.
Hornets’ forward PJ Washington represented the team for the event.
