Three more ties were broken for later first-round selections.

The Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs were tied for the second-best lottery odds. The Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards were tied for seventh, and the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder were tied for 11th-best odds.

The tie between the Rockets and Spurs went to Houston, but neither team had any stakes in the game as the top three teams in the lottery all have an equal 14 percent chance at landing No. 1.

The Pacers will have the seventh-best odds, 6.8 percent, after winning the tiebreaker over the Wizards, who will now have a 6.7 percent chance at grabbing the first overall selection.

The Bulls have the 11th-best odds (1.8 percent), while the Thunder finished the randomized drawing with the 12-best odds (1.7) percent.

Unless Chicago leaps into the top four, though, its pick will convey to Orlando as part of the Nikola Vucevic trade in 2021.
