Only if there is not a season.

He is talking about the fact that in the new CBA proposal by the League, there will be a change to the draft Lottery that will allow all non-playoff teams a chance at the first overall pick. The wording in the press release does not make it clear if that means teams will be only to slip one pick in the new system, much like the current one, or if the lottery for non-playoff teams will move teams all over the place, ala NBA.
