2012 Lottery 2012: Lotter To Determine Fate Of Chicago's Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis, native of Chicago and Kentucky Wildcats star, is almost certain to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. If that's true, he'll find out where he's going to play professional ball at the conclusion of tonight's NBA Lottery. The two teams with the best chance of getting Davis are the Charlotte Bobcats, who put one of the worst teams in NBA history on the court in 2012, and the Washington Wizards, who two years ago selected ex-Wildcat John Wall with the first overall pick.

Here are the odds that each lottery team will secure the first pick, as well as their chances at getting the second or third picks:
