The Timberwolves secured a playoff berth with a victory over the Nuggets on Wednesday and thus will send the lottery-protected pick to the Hawks via a 2015 trade. The pick will be No. 18 or No. 19 overall, depending on the result of a tiebreak between the Timberwolves and Spurs that is decided by a random drawing of ping-pong balls.
The Hawks also own their pick in the lottery, which will be no lower than seventh, plus Houston’s first-round pick, which is No. 30 overall. The Hawks acquired Houston’s pick in a 2017 trade.
