Change is coming to the NBA draft lottery, but the team most likely to be impacted if proposed adjustments are implemented is tapping the brakes.

A major overhaul will be voted on by the NBA Board of Governors in October that would bring balanced odds of landing the top pick to almost every team entered in the lottery process. At present, that comprises the 14 teams with the worst regular-season record.

ESPN reported the 76ers are strongly opposing that change.

Philadelphia unloaded many of its assets last season and posted a 19-63 record, but still wound up drafting third overall behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks. The season included a 26-game losing streak, but it was the Bucks who posted the worst record in the league.

To prevent teams from tanking as a means for improving chances at the highest picks in the next draft, commissioner Adam Silver is on board with giving the four or five worst teams equal chances at the No. 1 overall pick and only slightly reducing the probability any team that finishes with the fifth-worst through 14th-worst final record can also score the first pick.

Philadelphia owned two lottery picks in June, drafting Kansas center Joel Embiid and Dario Saric. Neither player is expected to be a major contributor as a rookie.

Because the 76ers went full bore toward a rebuild last season, the front office is pushing the NBA to put off any sweeping change to the draft or lottery system for another year in the name of strategic planning fairness.

In turn, Silver could choose to shrug off the concerns of the 76ers, who helped spur the major alterations by employing the very strategy the NBA is decrying.
