CHICAGO — The Detroit Pistons’ prize for one of the worst seasons in franchise history is what fans have dreaded since the team secured the worst record in the NBA last month.

Detroit won’t get the opportunity to draft French phenom Victor Wembanyama with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. Instead, the Pistons suffered another instance of bad lottery luck and fell to the fifth pick – the furthest they could fall – for the second consecutive year at the NBA Draft Lottery.
