The NBA is considering a proposal to eliminate the draft lottery as we currently know it in favor of a draft wheel.
The draft wheel would allow team to cycle through every draft slot and be guaranteed one top-six pick every five seasons and at least one top-12 pick in every four-year span.
The system is designed to protect against teams attempting to be bad or letting themselves be bad for a high draft pick.
The concept has gained traction in the higher levels of the NBA's league office and could be proposed to owners sometime in 2014, according to sources.
Others have expressed early opposition to the proposal.
