The fate of the New Orleans Pelicans could once again be altered with the right luck in the NBA Draft Lottery.
Even if the Pelicans don’t get that lucky and they stay in their most likely draft range, they could still find an impact talent in the draft, or use the pick in a big trade.
The Pelicans have had Lady Luck on their side in lotteries past, as they’ve not only gotten the number one pick twice but done so in years when there was a consensus superstar to take at number one.
The Pelicans are hoping it happens again.
What are the Pelicans’ lottery odds for each pick?
The Pelicans have just a 4.5 percent chance of landing the number one pick in the NBA Draft Lottery.
They have a 4.8 percent chance for number two, 5.2 percent for number three and 5.7 percent chance to get the 4th pick.
The Pelicans are most likely to pick 10th, and have a 60.6 percent chance to stay where they are, a 17.9 percent chance to drop one spot to pick 11 and a 1.2 percent chance of falling all the way to 12th.

Pelicans’ fans will be dancing in the streets once again if the Pels are lucky enough to get the number one pick, but even a jump into the top four would be enough to get them one of the guys who most people think will be stars.
If the Pelicans can get Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley, Jalen Green or Jalen Suggs, they’d be adding another potential star and a guy to build around along with Zion and Brandon Ingram.
It’s a long shot, but the Pelicans have done it before, so get out those charms.
