Encyclopedia > 1986 NBA Draft

The 1986 NBA Draft is perhaps most notable for the drug-related death of highly-touted Len Bias less than two days after being selected second overall by the defending champion Boston Celtics. Drug problems also hampered the careers of Chris Washburn (3) and Roy Tarpley (7). The problems of these lottery picks have given this draft the unusual quality of having more second-round selections who have gone on to become All Stars (Mark Price, Dennis Rodman, Kevin Duckworth, and Jeff Hornacek) than first-round selections who have done the same (Brad Daugherty). Leonard Kevin Bias (November 18, 1963 – June 19, 1986) was a college basketball player who suffered a fatal cardiac arrhythmia that resulted from a cocaine overdose less than 48 hours after being selected by the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Draft. ...

This draft contained two exceptional international players, both of whom played short careers for unusual reasons.

  • Third-round selection Drazen Petrovic was coming off an all-star caliber fourth season when he was killed in an automobile accident in 1993. He has since been elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
  • Arvydas Sabonis (24) was not permitted to play in the U.S. due to the political climate in the Soviet Union at the time. He won gold and bronze Olympic medals in 1988 (USSR) and 1992 (Lithuania). After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, Sabonis had a very successful career in Europe before finally coming to the Trail Blazers in 1995 and finishing second in both Sixth Man Award and Rookie of the Year voting. He played seven solid seasons with Portland before retiring.

Draft trivia

  • This draft is known as one of the worst in draft history. University of Maryland star Len Bias died (drug overdose) two days after being drafted. Chris Washburn (3rd pick by the Warriors) was another drug-related disappointment with an indifferent attitude toward the game. Roy Tarpley failed multiple drug tests and is still holding out for NBA reinstatement.
  • Despite (or rather because of) the disappointments in the first round, this may be one of the few drafts where more quality players were actually chosen in the second round, or even later. Mark Price and Jeff Hornacek developed into premier backcourt players during the 1990s, while Dennis Rodman was a highly regarded defensive player who played a major role on both the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls championship teams. Nate McMillan, Kevin Duckworth, Kenny Walker, Johnny Newman and David Wingate also had long, productive careers. Dražen Petrović, selected in the third round, died in an auto accident in 1993 after a breakout season which put him on the brink of NBA stardom.
  • The Cleveland Cavaliers had by far the best draft, landing Mark Price, Brad Daugherty, and Ron Harper. All three of these players became All-Stars and starters for the Cavaliers and were core members on a team that would make strong playoff appearances throughout the late 1980's and early 1990's. The pick that landed Harper had been granted by the league to the Cavaliers after their previous owner, Ted Stepien, traded away a number of first-round picks earlier in the decade, a practice subsequently outlawed by the NBA.
  • This draft is also known for the number of players who made important contributions to the sport of basketball off the court. For example, Nate McMillan had a highly successful run with the Sonics as head coach. Scott Skiles is currently coaching the Chicago Bulls. Jay Bilas, picked in the fifth round, is an analyst for the NBA Draft and college basketball.
  • Len Bias' death sparked a worldwide drug prevention campaign.
  • Arvydas Sabonis did not join the Trail Blazers in 1986; he would finally join the team in 1995, shortly before his 31st birthday. By that time, he had lost much of his mobility due to a string of knee and Achilles tendon injuries.
  • The 2006 NBA Draft marked the 20th anniversary of this draft.
