The NBA announced the results of tiebreakers on Tuesday, May 25 and here is a look at the final pre-draft lottery order with odds to get the No. 1 overall picks for each team.

The tiebreakers were between the Cavs and Thunder in the 4th slot, which OKC won. The other tiebreaker was between the Bulls, Kings and Pelicans, which Chicago won followed by SacTown and NOLA.
