It's not likely the Nets will win enough games to tie the Timberwolves and drop into a tie for first place in the Draft Lottery. That doesn't mean the Nets' other pick in first round--acquired from the Mavericks in the Jason Kidd trade--won't be a heads-or-tails situation. Teams that have identical records at season's end flip a coin on April 15 to settle draft order. If the season ended today, the Nets would be involved in a coin flip...with the Thunder. The Mavs, whose pick is held by the Nets, and Suns, whose pick is held by the Thunder, have identical 50-26 records. So, a coin flip would decide who gets pick #26 and who gets #27. With five other teams within three games of the Mavs, it's theoretically possible the Nets could wind up in a tie for a pick as high as #22. Three of the Mavs' six remaining games are against playoff teams.
