This doesn't promote tanking, but it still means that on average better players will go to lesser teams.
Not bad, but in order to prevent the 'Lemieux and Crosby both end up in Pittsburgh syndrome', in which a HUGE generational player is a temptation for massive tanking, I would propose a preliminary 1 ball each lottery for all non PO teams for 1st pick only, followed by your system for the remaining 13 non PO teams.
