The Nets lost a drawing with the Milwaukee Bucks Friday and will pick #11 in the June 25 NBA Draft should the lottery go according to the odds. The two teams had been tied in the final standings and so a drawing was needed to establish draft order and award the extra lottery combination. In the May 19 lottery, the Nets will now have nine chances out of 1,000 to get the overall #1 pick, the Bucks ten.
