Nuggets hoping for a lot of luck at National Basketball Association draft lottery

Josh Jackson Invites Special Guest to Attend 2018 NBA Draft Lottery

Josh Jackson Invites Special Guest to Attend 2018 NBA Draft Lottery

This is the past year under the current format before the National Basketball Association implements its new draft lottery rules. The team has missed the playoffs for six consecutive seasons and is making its sixth consecutive trip to the lottery. It's unlikely, but it happened in 2007 when the Portland Trail Blazers, Seattle SuperSonics and Atlanta Hawks moved from outside of the top three to the inside.

Not all teams now slotted in the lottery order are guaranteed to hold onto their picks.

Due to a trade with the Boston Celtics previous year to move up two spots in the draft in order to land Markelle Fultz at No. 1, Philadelphia could miss out on the Los Angeles pick if it happens to fall between 2-5. Therefore, if we don't hear the 76ers' name called at No. 10, then it makes the top-three revealing very interesting (see below in the final category).

Salmonella outbreak sickens people following multi-state egg recall
One of the world's largest producers of eggs, Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms, issued the recall in mid-April . Last month, Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County (N.C.) farm recalled more than 206 million eggs.

That said, Cleveland won the 2011 NBA Draft with a pick from the Los Angeles Clippers that had - you guessed it - a 2.8 percent chance of doing so.

Plus, if Boston were to somehow end up getting lucky with the Lakers falling in the 2-5 range, at least Philadelphia would still be in great shape for next year's Sacramento pick. One was originally their own (the 13th overall), but the other (the 12th) was initially owned by the Detroit Pistons, who gave the Clips the selection in the Blake Griffin deal. It's an unprotected pick, so there will be no switch with that one.

When the order of the first 14 teams is drawn Tuesday night, though, the Wolves will try something they haven't done since 2004: They're going to watch from a distance with a shrug.

Polls suggest Modi's BJP may be leading party in Karnataka
But, she is also confident that the BJP will secure a majority so the question will not arise for the Congress party. The last Assembly election in the southern state in 2013 had witnessed 71.4 per cent polling, the poll panel said.

Ironically, the Cavs are in the lottery thanks to the Brooklyn pick they received in the Irving trade with the Celtics.

Porzingis is the team's best building block right now.

Remember the Sauce Castillo pick-swap trade? But for the Magic, a team that desperately needs a talent infusion, nabbing a top-three pick this year would be crucial.

U.S. detainees thank Trump and God for release from North Korea
It followed a second visit to Pyongyang by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday to make arrangements for the summit. Trump has repeatedly said that if the meeting with Kim does not take the right course, he may walk out or cancel the summit.
