NBA Draft Lottery 2016 Results: 76ers, Lakers, Celtics Win Top Three Picks

The ping pong balls have fallen and the results were, in a word, boring.

The Philadelphia 76ers won the 2016 NBA Draft Lottery after having the highest odds to do so. In fact, no teams moved at all: everyone will pick exactly where their record dictated at the end of the regular season.

Philly gets the first overall pick for the first time since 1996, when it selected Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.

By landing at No. 2, the Los Angeles Lakers get to keep their pick. Had it landed outside the top three, it would have gone to the Phoenix Suns, who already are picking at Nos. 4 and 13.

Had the Sacramento Kings’ pick fallen outside the top 10, it would have gone to the Chicago Bulls.

Take a look at the full results below. The 2016 NBA Draft takes place June 23.

14. Chicago Bulls
13. Phoenix Suns (via Washington Wizards)
12. Utah Jazz
11. Orlando Magic
10. Milwaukee Bucks
9. Toronto Raptors (via Denver Nuggets)
8. Sacramento Kings
7. Denver Nuggets (via New York Knicks)
6. New Orleans Pelicans
5. Minnesota Timberwolves
4. Phoenix Suns
3. Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets)
2. Los Angeles Lakers
1. Philadelphia 76ers
