One possible reason -

It may benefit from finishing the season last by being given the priority draft picks for next season. If a team is performing poorly near the end of a season, it may well want to ensure that it finishes last to get those best draft picks.

Australian Rules football is one sport where the draft picks depend on performance, per the above.
