CLEVELAND — Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert Tweeted this afternoon that he sent his son, Nick, to New York to take part in a coin flip to determine the odds for the upcoming NBA Draft.

Nick and the Cavaliers won the coin flip and the team now hold the third most ping pong balls, with a 13.8% chance at the number 1 overall pick. There is a 42.4% chance that the Cavaliers will pick in the top three and they can pick no worse than sixth based on league rules.

Gilbert Tweeted:

The Cavaliers and the Hornets finished with the same record and the coin flip was needed to determine which team goes into the May 30 NBA Draft Lottery with the advantage.
