2020 NBA Draft Lottery live stream, TV channel and odds for each team

The 2020 NBA playoffs are in full swing, but the eyes of the basketball world will be fixated on another important event Thursday night.

The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery will take place virtually and determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks in the upcoming draft.

Don't miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-76ers Game 3, which begins Friday at 5:30 p.m. with Celtics Pregame Live followed by tip-off at 6:30 p.m. You can also stream the game on the MyTeams App.

The Boston Celtics again will be part of the process despite not having their own first-round pick in the actual lottery. If the Memphis Grizzlies land outside the top six in the lottery -- and there's a 97.6 percent chance they do -- their selection will go to the Celtics and complete a 2014 trade between the two teams. If the Grizzlies miraculously jump into the top four in the lottery, Memphis will keep its 2020 first-rounder and instead send a 2021 first round pick to Boston unprotected.

The top players from the 2020 class on most draft boards are Georgia shooting guard James Edwards, Memphis center James Wiseman and point guard LaMelo Ball. 

Here are the odds each team in the lottery has of winning the top pick.

Golden State Warriors: 14.0 percent
Cleveland Cavaliers: 14.0
Minnesota Timberwolves: 14.0
Atlanta Hawks: 12.5
Detroit Pistons: 10.5
New York Knicks: 9.0
Chicago Bulls: 7.5
Charlotte Hornets: 6.0
Washington Wizards: 4.5
Phoenix Suns: 3.0
San Antonio Spurs: 2.0
Sacramento Kings: 1.3
New Orleans Pelicans: 1.2
Memphis Grizzlies: 0.5
