NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Hornets could end up with the top overall pick in this summer's draft if the ping pong polls fall their way tonight.

The annual NBA draft lottery gets underway from New York this evening around 6:55.

Entering the Lottery, New Orleans holds a 14.8% chance of winning the first, second or third pick. There is a 13.7% chance of winning the top pick with their own selection (slotted fourth overall) and a 1.1% chance of winning with Minnesota's selection (slotted 10th, acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers).

New Orleans' pick can fall anywhere from first to seventh in the draft. The pick acquired from the Clippers can fall from first to third or from 10th to 13th.

The 2012 NBA Draft will be held on June 28 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
