  • Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving works the ball against New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis in the second half of an NBA basketball game in New Orleans Monday Nov. 26 2018. The Celtics won 124-107

On the morning of the National Basketball Association playoffs, the Knicks touted their May 14th lottery by announcing team legend/Georgetown head coach Patrick Ewing will represent the team on the dais. Next month, Patrick Ewing will represent NY at the Draft Lottery for a chance to get Zion. "Patrick's connection to the lottery is well documented, and we're proud to have one of the all-time Knicks greats sit on the dais on behalf of the team, the city and the fans".

The Cleveland Cavaliers won a critical pre-lottery tiebreaker against the Phoenix Suns on Friday as the two finished the 2018-19 campaign with identical records at 19-63.

The tiebreaker determined which team would pick sixth versus seventh if four teams with worse odds than either team jump into the top-four; or which team would select fifth versus sixth if the league-worst Knicks, plus three teams with worse odds than either Phoenix or Cleveland, take the top four spots.

Because it finished with the league's worst record, NY will select no lower than fifth in June's draft.

Ultimately, the Cleveland Cavaliers won this 2019 NBA Draft lottery odds tiebreaker over the Suns, according to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert (Cleveland would lose a tie breaker for their second first-round pick, via the Houston Rockets, though). In prior years, the worst club had a 25-percent shot.

Knicks head coach David Fizdale had Ewing speak to his team earlier this season on a trip to Washington to play the Wizards. Ewing was traded to Seattle in his 16th season.
