The Milwaukee Bucks have the best chance of picking first overall in the NBA Draft, but who is the top prize among three elite college basketball prospects?

The NBA Draft is unlike any other because the team with the most losses from the regular season gets more Ping-Pong balls than any other in a raffle-style drawing. With 250 balls, the Bucks have a 25 percent chance at the top pick, followed by the Philadelphia 76ers at 19.9 percent and the Orlando Magic at 15.6 percent.

The Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics are the last two teams with at least 100 balls and they each have about a 10 percent chance at the number one pick. However, this year's class promises to reward every team with a lottery pick.

"To me it's part of the mystery and part of the enjoyment in seeing who's right, who's wrong," NBA commissioner Adam Silver told ESPN. "Will these perceived great players coming into the draft really be in a position to turn around teams? So it's part of the fun."

SB Nation's Tyler Lashbrook opined Andrew Wiggins should be the first overall pick for an "unlimited upside." He did not live up to wildly absurd expectations set for his one season at Kansas, but he is long, fast and athletic and can play shooting guard or small forward.

But picking either Joel Embiid or Jabari Parker at second and third is not exactly a consolation prize. Each player has top-pick potential, Embiid as an all-around talented seven-foot center and Parker as a complete offensive force.

Rounding out the top five on ESPN expert Chad Ford's big board is Aussie point guard Dante Exum and Indiana power forward Noah Vonleh.

Making a strange appearance among teams guaranteed to have a single-digit pick are the Los Angeles Lakers and the Celtics, two of the most storied NBA franchises.

The NBA Draft Lottery will air on ESPN Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET.
