New York, NY (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Timberwolves didn't move up or down on Tuesday night in the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery, meaning the team holds onto the ninth pick in next month's NBA Draft.

It marks the 15th straight time Minnesota has been part of the NBA Draft Lottery and not moved at all, with the Timberwolves entering Tuesday with a 1.7 percent chance of getting the top overall selection.

Minnesota also owns the 26th overall pick in this year's draft, with that originally belonging to Memphis, and two picks in the second round.

Cleveland won the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery for the second time in three years and will select first, followed by Orlando and Washington. The 2013 NBA Draft will be held on June 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
