NBA Lottery Results: Bucks stick at #10, Sixers and Lakers go #1-2

Expect the expected. There was no magic for the Milwaukee Bucks on lottery night. As expected, the Bucks came away from the NBA Draft Lottery with the #10 overall pick, and in general "as expected" was the operative word on the evening.
