And just like that things stay the same.

For the last few weeks there had been a lot of talk that the NBA and its Owners would vote to approve a new Lottery re-form system to disincentive losing and more evenly spread out the odds of landing the top level draft picks.

That vote occurred today, and despite what was expected to be a win in favor of change, according to Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski 13 NBA teams voted “No” and the measure lost.

According to Wojnarowski, the Phoenix Suns, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Pelicans, Detroit Pistons, Miami HEAT, Milwaukee Bucks, San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats and Chicago Bulls all voted against changing the system.

The proposed plan was set to change the lottery system as early as this season, and seems to have been voted down.
