So if we end up with 2 picks in the lottery, we could essentially pick 1 - 2, or 13 - 14.
I believe you can still only drop one spot worst case. They only raffle off the first overall pick, so 17th place can theoretically move up to #1 – albeit with the lowest odds to do so – but the 30th place team can get no worse than #2, and so on.
