The NBA's Board of Governors passed draft lottery reform today, league sources tell ESPN. New rules will start with 2019 Draft.

Sources: The NBA's draft lottery reform passed 28-1-1. Oklahoma City voted "No" and Dallas abstained. NBA needed 3/4th majority for passage.

Glad they didn't go one step further and forbid a team from having a top 3 pick in consecutive years, which was on the table.  I like the reform.  Should discourage teams from completely tanking.  Whether you win 17-18 games or 23-24 games it doesn't really matter anymore.

Still not ideal, but a major improvement.
