Pistons lose tiebreaker to 76ers

Philadelphia won the tiebreaker with the Pistons on Friday in a random drawing and will select ahead of Detroit in the NBA Draft if neither team moves up in the NBA Draft lottery.

The Pistons (27-55) and 76ers tied for the sixth worst record in the league. As a result of the tiebreaker Detroit will not pick higher than seventh unless it wins one of the top three spots in the lottery.

Detroit has a 5.3 percent chance of winning the top pick, 6.02 percent chance of winning the second pick and 6.96 percent chance of winning the third pick. If the Pistons don’t win a spot in the lottery, they can pick as high as No. 7 and as low as No. 10.

The draft lottery will be held on May 18. The draft is on June 24 in New York City.
