This year, all teams who fail to make the playoffs have a chance to jump to the #1 pick. Although highly unlikely, the team who finishes 17th in the league and doesn't make the playoffs has a 0.50% chance of winning lottery and jumping all the way up to #1 overall, then everyone else moves down 1 spot.
I understand that, but no one has said if the lottery is just for the first pick or for all lottery picks. That is what I am asking. I haven't read where someone specifically states it is one way or the other.
