The Portland Trail Blazers will have the No. 7 overall selection in the 2022 NBA Draft.

Portland was represented by Damian Lillard at Tuesday’s draft lottery in Brooklyn, New York.  They had a 9 % chance at the No. 1 overall pick, a 9.2 % chance for the No. 2 overall selection, a 9.4% chance at No.3 overall, and 9.6 % chance at the No. 4 overall pick.

With the sixth-worst overall record in the NBA in the 2021-22 season (27-55), Portland held the sixth-highest odds of landing the No. 1 overall pick.  Instead, they fall back a spot to the seventh overall pick.
