This time last week the Sixers were fighting in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Now the shift has focused to the NBA draft. The team will find out its selections at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night at the lottery held in Chicago.

The Sixers are locked in for Nos. 26, 38, 39, 56, 60, acquired through their own picks or previous trades. 

The big question mark is the Lakers' 2018 first-round pick, which dates back to the Michael Carter-Williams deal in 2015. The Sixers included that pick with conditions in the 2017 trade to the Celtics in which they landed the No. 1 selection to draft Markelle Fultz. 

If the Lakers' pick is one or six and beyond, the Sixers hold on to it. The Celtics keep it if it ends up two through five. 

With a 35-47 record, the Lakers are most likely to get the 10th pick. They do have a 1.1 percent chance of No. 1. If that small possibility pans out, the Sixers would draft first for the third straight year. 

Lottery picks and odds of getting the No. 1 selection: 

1. Suns: 25.0%
2. Grizzlies: 19.9%
