The Portland Trail Blazers have landed the No. 3 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery and likely the first chance to select G League Ignite point guard Scoot Henderson or Alabama freshman Brandon Miller.
The San Antonio Spurs have landed the No. 1 pick and first chance at drafting generational prospect Victor Wembanyama out of France. The Charlotte Hornets have won the No. 2 pick and will select directly ahead of Portland.
At the No. 3 spot, Henderson and Miller are the most likely prospects to be selected by Portland based on mock draft projections, but other possible prospects likely include Houston forward Jarace Walker and big guards Amen and Ausar Thompson out of Overtime Elite.
Coming into the night, Portland had a 10.6% chance to win the third pick.
