 The 2017 NBA Draft is just under a month away and the lottery is full of storylines. Here are “most likely” awards for each team in the lottery.

The NBA Draft Lottery came and went with the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers coming away with the top two picks in the draft.

But the storylines don’t stop there.

Phoenix, despite the tanking, moved down to fourth while Philadelphia landed another top three pick. Sacramento lands two picks in the top ten after being scolded for the DeMarcus Cousins trade and the Knicks moved back to the 8th pick.

For fans in Dallas, luck didn’t fall their way, but landing the 9th overall pick in a loaded draft is something that many fans are thrilled to see the outcome of.

Everyone is releasing mock drafts while some of the “experts” are trying to predict trades that could happen on draft night. I took a look at each team and tried to make some type of prediction for a direction they could go.

Here are my “most likely” awards for each team in the lottery.
