Notes:

  1. In the first round, teams that did not make the playoffs have been assigned a position in the lottery based on winning percentages in 2019-20 regular-season games played through March 11, 2020, and teams that made the playoffs have been assigned draft positions 15-30 based on combined winning percentages in 2019-20 regular-season games played through March 11, 2020, and seeding games (in both cases, teams with identical winning percentages have been assigned a position based on the results of the tiebreaker drawings).
  2. In the second round, teams that did not make the playoffs have been assigned draft positions 31-44 based on winning percentages in 2019-20 regular-season games played through March 11, 2020, and teams that made the playoffs have been assigned draft positions 45-60 based on combined winning percentages in 2019-20 regular-season games played through March 11, 2020 and seeding games (in both cases, teams with identical winning percentages will select in inverse order of the order in which they select in the first round).
  3. With respect to the winning percentage tie between New Orleans and Sacramento: The order of selection in the first round (and therefore the inverse order in the second round) will be determined by the Draft Lottery on Aug. 20, 2020.
