Division, Conference Could be Reshaped by Lottery

Rod Thorn knows the value of the draft. He picked Michael Jordan with the #3 pick in 1984 and worked a draft night trade in 2001 that helped remake the Nets. Now, he says Tuesday's lottery is likely to make a one GM look as smart as he did.

Things are about to change...dramatically.
