After that it's no more lottery and the remaining teams get the rest of the picks based on their record. So if we don't win any lottery for the first, second, or third pick we would be given the fourth pick. (Unless the Bucks didn't win the first, second, or third either they would get fourth and we would get fifth).
Yup, worst-case scenario is the Pelicans luck into a top 3 pick along with two other non-Milwaukee teams. That would push the Sixers to the 5th pick while the Pelicans keep theirs.

The chance that happens is infinitesimally small, so... it will happen.

It's based on odds not history. If you believe in the law of averages, the two worst teams are due to win one of these things.

Despite resolving to follow NCAA basketball, I ended up actively ignoring it for two years. I definitely did that wrong.

Can anybody in this draft save the franchise?

If healthy, Embiid could be the best player in this class. If the opportunity presents itself, it would be tough to pass him up at 3 or 4.

NEED Wiggins. Would be happy if we get Parker. Anybody else and I'll be disappointed.
