Bucks Have 1% Chance of Getting No. 1 Pick
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks enter Tuesday night's NBA draft lottery with a 1 percent chance of securing the No. 1 overall pick.
The Bucks are slotted to pick 10th if they don't get one of the top three positions awarded in the lottery. They finished the season 34-48, an eight-win improvement over the previous year.
Milwaukee was in a playoff position in the Eastern Conference until March, when season-ending injuries to guard Michael Redd and center Andrew Bogut wore the team down.
Along with the lottery pick, the Bucks will have a selection in the second round -- either 40th or 41st -- depending on the lottery outcome to break a tie with New Jersey.
Milwaukee won the draft lottery in 2005 and selected Bogut.
