The NBA is unlikely to have another discussion of lottery reform until the next session of collective bargaining in 2016 or 2017.

Last fall, Adam Silver submitted a proposal that would have flattened the lottery odds but it was voted down by 12 teams voting with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Oklahoma City Thunder were among the teams to lead a behind-the-scenes lobbying effort.

The fear was small market teams would be at a disadvantage to tanking for a high draft pick.
