    Under the old CBA, what were a team's chance to win the lotto and move up four places? Searching the internet, I can find the percentage chance the higher seeds had to move up, but what about the 11th through 14th drafters. I know their chance of winning the lotto was miniscule, but I'm interested to see the actual percentage numbers.

    If anyone has any link or remembers the percentage for all 14 non-playoff teams, I'd appriciate it. Thanks.

    At one point our FHL used the same percentages, although we might have drifted apart some time in the past. But if we're still on, it's a 14-choose-4 lottery, which means there are 1001 possible combinations. We assign the following lots of winning combinations:

    30th - 251 (i.e. 251/1001 = 25.1%)
    29th - 188
    28th - 142
    27th - 107
    26th - 81
    25th - 62
    24th - 47
    23rd - 36
    22nd - 27
    21st - 21
    20th - 15
    19th - 11
    18th - 8
    17th - 5
