The 2021 NBA Draft lottery took place on Tuesday night. It was a massive night for the Detroit Pistons as the pick pong balls bounced in their favor to grab the number one overall pick. Cade Cunningham, who draws comparisons to Luka Doncic, is projected to be the top selection on July 29. The Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers also jumped into the top four.

The Dallas Mavericks were not involved in the lottery. They currently do not have a pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. They traded their first-round selection to the Knicks in the Kristaps Porzingis deal. Dallas also swapped their second-round pick for J.J. Redick at the trade deadline. Expect the Mavs to be active in scouting and working on deals leading into the draft.

Here is a look at the complete order for all 60 picks on draft night following the lottery.

The lottery locked in all 60 selections, but there will be plenty of movement between now and draft night. Fans saw the first trade of the offseason when the Boston Celtics swapped Kemba Walker for Al Horford. Oklahoma City picked up Boston’s first-round pick in the deal. Expect plenty more moves leading up to July 29.

It will be interesting to see if the Dallas Mavericks trade for a pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. They currently do not have a selection, but things can change fast. July 29 will be a massive night for multiple franchises, so do not miss it.
