The Bucks received the sixth pick, the worst possible for them.
Milwaukee had only a 4 percent chance of landing in the sixth position due to having the third-worst record in the league.
The Bucks had more than a 15 percent chance of receiving the top pick in June's draft and were projected to most likely get the fifth pick.
But, general manager Larry Harris' lucky charm this year didn't work.
Milwaukee did receive the top pick in the 2005 draft, which they used to select Andrew Bogut.
