Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Monday night, executives from the fourteen NBA teams that did not make the playoffs convened in New York City to reveal the order of the 2015 NBA Draft.

The biggest surprise of the evening was the Los Angeles Lakers moving into the Top 3, selecting at number 2.  The Minnesota Timberwolves had the highest chance of winning the draft and did so, picking first for the first time in franchise history.  It marks the first time since 2004 that the team with the best odds of getting the first pick did so.  The Orlando Magic won in 2004 and selected Dwight Howard.
