Bleacher Report

● By Jonathan Wasserman
The Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards are the favorites to win the first pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. Both franchises will have a 14.0 percent chance at No. 1 overall. The most interesting ping pong balls to watch will be the Toronto Raptors—they'll give their pick to the Spurs if it lands outside the top six. With no consensus top prospect, rankings or tiers, that means fit will play a bigger role than usual when predicting the draft. The NBA combine in May will be the next big opportunity for prospects to move the needle, which is something we see many do year after year in Chicago.
