The New Orleans Hornets bucked the odds and won the NBA Draft Lottery, securing the No. 1 pick and the chance to draft PF Anthony Davis.
Let the conspiracy theories fly, as the Hornets, still technically owned by the NBA, overtook the Bobcats for the big pick. That was the only true surprise of the lottery, although the Brooklyn Nets will have to send their No. 6 pick to Portland, who will also pick 11th. Here is the entire lottery: 1. New Orleans, 2. Charlotte, 3. Washington, 4. Cleveland, 5. Sacramento, 6. Portland (via Brooklyn), 7. Golden State, 8, Toronto, 9. Detroit, 10. New Orleans, 11. Portland, 12. Milwaukee, 13. Phoenix, 14. Houston.
