KUSA - Someday, the Denver Nuggets will get lucky in the NBA Draft Lottery. That day was not Tuesday.
As expected, the Nuggets will pick 13th in the 2017 Draft this June. They were at the same spot in the order prior to the televised ceremony.
Coming into the Lottery, they had a 2.2 percent chance of getting a top 3 pick, and just a 0.6 percent chance of snagging the No. 1 overall selection.
We broke down the Nuggets' astronomically low chances in a story earlier in the day.
The franchise hasn't been awarded a top 3 pick in the lottery since taking Carmelo Anthony No. 3 overall in 2003.
