NEW YORK (AP) -- The Philadelphia 76ers have won the NBA draft lottery and will have the No. 1 pick in June.
 
   The Los Angeles Lakers finished second Tuesday night but also felt like winners, as they would have dealt their pick to Philadelphia had they fallen out of the top three.
 
   The Boston Celtics, with a pick dealt to them by the Brooklyn Nets, remained in the No. 3 slot.
 
   The Denver Nuggets will pick in the 7th spot, same as last year when they took Emmanuel Mudiay with the 7th pick. 
 
   Nobody moved up in the lottery, which sets the top three picks. The remainder of the 14 teams are slotted in the inverse order of their won-loss record.
 
   The draft is June 23 in New York.
