NBA Poised to Change Draft Lottery System?

League sources: NBA sent memo today indicating 30 teams could vote on slightly revised lottery reform proposal at Bd of Gov later this month

Proposal follows same general principles as the one I outlined here, with some small tweaks in the odds/percentages: http://grantland.com/the-triangle/

Tweaks include decreasing odds just a bit for lotto teams with the best records, sources say. Lottery would draw top-6 picks, up from top-3

Vote possibly taking place at B.O.G. later this month shows league has interest in implementing reform for the next lottery/draft.

Proposal details: four worst teams would have equal 12 percent chance to win No. 1 pick. Worst team could fall no lower than No 7.

Four teams w/ best record would have, in order, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, 2.5% chance at No. 1 pick and better chance than today of moving into top-6

Under current rules, worst team has 25% chance at No. 1. Second-worst: 19.9%. Third-worst: 15.6%. Proposal would give 4 worst equal 12% odds

And to be clear: Any change approved in October (or later in season) could — and probably would — go into effect for this draft lottery
