After the tiebreakers today the Spurs now have the 20th (Raptors) and 25th (Celtics) picks in the 2022 NBA Draft.— Noah Magaro-George (@N_Magaro) April 18, 2022
San Antonio also holds the ninth-best lottery odds and a 20.3% chance at a top-four pick in this top heavy class.
The order of those picks was up in the air for the last few weeks because Denver and Toronto finished 48-34 during the regular season. Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Boston also tied in the league standings at 51-31.
The league settled these tiebreakers, and the results are below:
- The Toronto Raptors get the 20th pick (To San Antonio)
- The Denver Nuggets get the 21st pick
- The Philadelphia 76ers get the 23rd pick
- The Milwaukee Bucks get the 24th pick
- The Boston Celtics get the 25th pick (To San Antonio)
The Silver and Black also have the ninth-best odds in the 2022 NBA Draft Lottery after losing to New Orleans in the Play-In Tournament. Thankfully for them, that means a 20.3% chance at a top-four pick this June.
San Antonio possesses three first-rounders and an early second-rounder in this upcoming draft, which they could package with or without a player to bring a proven star or higher pick to the 2-1-0.
