The 1993 NBA DRAFT took place on June 30, 1993, in Auburn Hills, Michigan . The draft had some talented players at the top, but injuries and personal problems hurt many of them. Anfernee Hardaway , Allan Houston , and Jamal Mashburn

all looked like possible Hall of Famers until their careers were cut short by injuries. Isaiah Rider and Vin Baker

showed great potential but were plagued by personal problems. Bobby Hurley 's career was derailed by a car accident in December of his rookie year. The mid-to-late first round (starting with pick 13) was littered with players that failed to make any significant impact, with the exception of three-time NBA champion Sam Cassell . One of the NBA best all-time wing defensive players, three-time champion Bruce Bowen

, went un-drafted.

Despite having the lowest odds, the Orlando Magic surprisingly won the first pick in the 1993 NBA Draft Lottery

. It was the second year in a row the Magic won the draft lottery. The Magic drafted Chris Webber with the number one overall pick, but only minutes later, executed a blockbuster trade. The Magic traded Webber to the Golden State Warriors for their first round pick (#3 overall) Penny Hardaway and three of Golden State's future first-round draft selections.
