The 2021 NBA Draft was conducted on Tuesday night as deputy commissioner Mark Tatum announced the order of the first 14 picks. However, a lottery process was conducted to make the order of the first four picks while the rest of the picks have been determined on the basis of the winning percentage of teams during the NBA 2020-21 season.

Detroit Pistons were the biggest beneficiary of the lottery as they got the No.1 overall pick for the 2021 NBA Draft scheduled to take place on July 29. Meanwhile, Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors got the second and third picks respectively. 2004 NBA champion Ben Wallace was visibly delighted as Pistons got the all-important first pick.
