The bouncing balls went the Hornets’ way at the lottery Wednesday night, as they landed the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. The best player available is widely considered to be Kentucky [1] standout Anthony Davis [2]. The Hornets moved up from the fourth spot, where they had a 13.7 percent chance to win the first pick.

The league still technically owns the franchise while the sale to Saints owner Tom Benson [3] is being finalized.

Meanwhile, the Bobcats, who had the worst winning percentage in NBA history last season and a 25 percent chance to land the first pick, fell to the No. 2 spot. The Wizards and Cavs will select third and fourth, respectively.
