We'll finally know what the first round draft order will look like later today. Watch it on ESPN's SportsCenter and online on WatchESPN.com if you have the right cable provider.

One team will smile later today like New Orleans Pelicans (that's their name now) head coach Monty Williams did here in 2012.

So, here's your place to talk about the 2014 Draft Lottery where the Connecticut Sun, Tulsa Shock, New York Liberty, and San Antonio Silver Stars will try to get the rights to the first pick in the Draft. Getting the number one pick can bring a franchise forward in its rebuilding process, but falling back to fourth could also be a major step back if you look at it that way, and are a fan of a team that desperately needs a superstar to "save the franchise."

While the lottery itself isn't much more than just "The fourth pick goes to whoever" and "The third pick goes to whoever," etc., I feel like this lottery unlike last year, could be one where trade possibilities are more realistic. After all, there is no "Big Three" for ESPN to go bonkers about, and I just don't think that there is enough player movement as it is. So, feel free to throw your trade ideas.

Enjoy the lottery everyone!
