The Timberwolves will be picking 11th in the NBA Draft next month following the results of the NBA Draft lottery on Tuesday.

Entering the draft, the Wolves had the 10th best odds in the lottery, with a 13.9 percent chance of moving up into the top four of the draft, and a 3 percent of landing the top pick.

But, you know, Minnesota sports fans can't have nice things.

Gersson Rosas was on hand to represent the Wolves at the lottery.

The Los Angeles Lakers, who were one spot behind the Wolves of landing the top pick, vaulted from the 11th-best odds to the fourth overall selection.

The New Orleans Pelicans won the draft lottery who entered the evening with the seventh-best odds of winning the draft, with just a 6 percent chance of winning.
