Well, I guess there’s no need to watch later tonight…
On Tuesday, fans were waiting in anticipation to see if their team would get a franchise changing player depending on if some balls land in their favor.
Unfortunately for the NBA, a video leaked of ESPN’s rehearsal and it showed the top picks of the draft hours before it gets officially announced.
FWIW – just caught the ESPN rehearsal for tonight’s NBA draft lottery. Rachel Nichols and Mark Tatum announced Phx as the winner. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of what’s to come.— Jon Fox, NBA (@NewLookKnicks) May 14, 2019

It should be noted that this likely just practice for the real thing, since the actual draw doesn’t happen for hours.
I don't know what you're referring to, but the draw hasn't happened yet. Also, the draw hasn't happened yet. And by the way, the draw hasn't happened yet.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) May 14, 2019
The draw happens at 6:50p CT.
