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.

The 1993 Draft marked the first (and to date, only) time in the Lottery Era that the No. 1 pick was held by the same team in consecutive years (Orlando Magic). The Magic selected Chris Webber but was traded to the Golden State Warriors for Hardaway.
