The 2015 NBA Draft Lottery drew a 3.2 overnight rating, making it the highest rated lottery ever shown on ESPN, according to Ben Cafardo.

With the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers at the top of the lottery, ratings were expected to be up. The Miami Heat also were in a situation where they could lose their pick entirely.

The top-5 local markets were Memphis (5.1), Houston (5.0), Miami (5.0), New York, (4.9) and Philadelphia (4.8).
