Tonight we learned there’s probably going to be little for Pistons fans to get psyched about as we head into next month’s NBA Draft.

With just a 0.7 percent chance at the number one overall selection and a 2.5 percent chance at landing within the top three, the Pistons found their number called at the 12 spot during tonight’s NBA Draft Lottery. This pretty much entitles them to an underwhelming selection when the draft is all said and done. Not to mention the 12th pick was pretty much guaranteed when the Nuggets and Heat were selected immediately before them at 13 and 14 respectively.

Anyways, here’s the rundown for the full two rounds which you may note the Pistons are without a second-round pick due to their three-team trade that brought Reggie Jackson to Detroit.

1. Boston Celtics
2. Los Angeles Lakers
3. Philadelphia 76ers
4. Phoenix Suns
5. Sacramento Kings
6. Orlando Magic
7. Minnesota Timberwolves
8. New York Knicks
