SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NBA has set their draft order for the June 20 Draft. The upcoming Salt Lake City Summer League has two of their participants that will draft in the Top 10 in the draft.

The Memphis Grizzlies landed the No. 2 overall pick, which has two really good prospects that could be playing summer league in Utah in R.J. Barrett from Duke and Ja Morant from Murray State.

The New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft Lottery and will almost certainly select Duke phenom Zion Williamson.

One of the other teams playing summer league in Salt Lake City is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who entering the lottery had the highest percentage to win the lottery with Phoenix and New York at 14 percent. They will get the No. 5 overall pick.

The 2019 NBA Draft will basically have Williamson go first in the draft and Morant and Barrett as the second and third picks then the rest of the draft is wide open.

Along with Memphis, Cleveland and Utah, the San Antonio Spurs will also participate in the Salt Lake City Summer League.

The entire lottery order includes:

  1. New Orleans Pelicans
  2. Memphis Grizzlies
  3. New York Knicks
  4. Los Angeles Lakers
  5. Cleveland Cavaliers
  6. Phoenix Suns
  7. Chicago Bulls
  8. Atlanta Hawks
  9. Washington Wizards
  10. Atlanta Hawks
  11. Minnesota Timberwolves
  12. Charlotte Hornets
  13. Miami Heat
  14. Boston Celtics
