Draft lottery % for all 30 teams?

I'm looking for a chart with the odds for all 30 teams to win the draft lottery, I already know the % for the first 5 teams, but I want all 30 of them. If anyone has a link to that, or can post it here, I'd be really glad. Thanks.

Only the worst 14 teams participate in the lottery. The playoff teams are ineligible.

Thanks, that's all that I need, amazing that the #1 team only has a 1/4 chance at the top pick.

It has more, as draft lottery winner goes maximum 4 places up. Los Angeles (1995) and Chicago (1998) won lottery from positions 7 and 8. LA took Berg 3rd overall, while Chicago traded its #4 pick.

Actually percentage is 100%-18,8%-14,2%-10,7%-8,1%=48,2%, so little less than 1/2.

Not correct.

The worst team only has a 25% chane of winning the lottery, but since you can only move up 4 spots, if the 17-25th teams win the lottery, the 30th team still gets the #1 pick.

The worst team gets just under a 50% chance of keeping the top pick.

30th...........25.0%
29th........... 18.8%
28th........... 14.2%
27th........... 10.7%
26th............. 8.1%
25th............. 6.2%
24th............. 4.7%
23rd............. 3.6%
22nd............ 2.7%
21st............. 2.1%
20th............. 1.5%
19th............. 1.1%
18th............. 0.8%
17th............. 0.5%
