The NBA draft lottery will end on Sunday, with the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns each making it through.

    In the event that a team makes the playoffs, the team will be awarded the first pick and the team with the next pick will have the opportunity to pick at the end of the first round.

    The first-round selection is awarded to the team that falls behind the other team in the standings.

    The second-round pick is awarded on a tiebreaker basis.

    If a team falls behind in the second round, it will be determined by the tiebreaker.

    The teams that fall behind in each round also have the chance to swap first- and second-rounder.

    The Knicks, Nets and Suns will be guaranteed to make the playoffs in the NBA’s first round, while the Clippers and Bulls will fall short of the playoffs.

    The Celtics will be in the first playoff spot in the East, and the Knicks, Suns and Blazers will be tied for second-best.

    The lottery is not set to end until Sunday.

    The final picks will be announced Sunday morning, but the lottery will not be broadcast.
