Miami has a 4.7 percent chance of landing a top-four pick.

NBA: Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat have just a 4.7 percent chance of getting a top-four pick in the NBA Draft. But the team will host an NBA Draft Lottery party at American Airlines Arena during the telecast revealing the order of lottery picks May 14.

Bam Adebayo, whom the Heat selected with the 14th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, will make an appearance at the watch party.

This will be the first year the NBA will enforce its draft lottery reform that is designed to disincentivize tanking. The changes don’t significantly affect Miami as the 13th-worst team — but their chances of getting into the top four are slightly higher than they would have been.
