The New Orleans Pelicans did not have a lucky Tuesday.

The NBA announced announced the results of tie-breaking coin tosses among lottery teams, and the Pelicans came up on the short end against the Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings.

New Orleans now enters into the June 22 draft lottery at the No. 10 slot. The Pelicans have a 4.5% chance of winning the No. 1 overall pick and a 20.3% chance of vaulting into the top four. If they do not draw a top four pick, New Orleans could fall as far as the 14th pick.
