The 2014 NBA draft lottery will take place on Tuesday in New York to determine the top three selections in this year's draft.

While no team is a 100 percent lock to acquire one of these picks, the Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic have the best chances.

It all depends on how the ping-pong balls fall.

Once the top three picks are set, the remaining 11 teams will hold positions four through 14 based on the inverse order of their regular-season records.

We've seen plenty of surprises in the past, and we could certainly be in for more come Tuesday.

As we all wait with bated breath to see how everything unfolds, let's take a look at the lottery's complete viewing information and odds, as well as predict the first 14 overall selections of June's draft.

Pick Predictions

With the 2014 NBA Draft Combine now in the books, several prospects increased their draft stocks in a big way.

ESPN Stats & Info tweeted two notable prospects who shined in Chicago:

Noah Vonleh was another prospect who stood out in a big way. His massive hand size was a big talking point during the combine. NBA Legion tweeted a very telling comparison:

While Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid didn't participate at the combine, potential top-three pick Dante Exum did.

Exum impressed in interviews with a very mature attitude for an 18-year-old prospect. Alex Kennedy of NBA.com tweeted his impression of Exum in Chicago:

Not only did the guard impress in interviews, he was fantastic during on-court drills as well. ESPN Stats & Info tweeted an interesting comparison of Exum's speed to top-tier NBA players:

Taking all of that into consideration, here's a look at how the first 14 picks of the draft could potentially shake out:
