The NBA lottery is set.

The Utah Jazz hold the No. 9 spot in the NBA draft lottery. Utah’s odds for a top-four pick in the lottery are currently 20.3% and its odds for the No. 1 overall pick are 4.5%, per Tankathon.com,

The Jazz also hold the Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round pick. That pick finished in the No. 16 spot, just outside of the lottery.

The 2023 NBA draft is projected to have great players available in the lottery. It’s headlined by perhaps the most-hyped draft prospect since LeBron James — 7-foot-3 center Victor Wembanyama. Wembanyama can handle the ball well, make 3-pointers, pass and be a generational force on the defensive end.

Wembanyama, guard Scoot Henderson, forward Amen Thompson and forward Brandon Miller are projected to be the top four players in June’s draft.
