The 1999 NBA Draft was held on June 30, 1999 at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C.. It was the first draft in which four players from the same college were picked in the first round, with Elton Brand (1st selection), Trajan Langdon (11th), Corey Maggette (13th) and William Avery (14th) being selected out of Duke University. It is widely viewed as one of the best draft classes, with a total of nine future NBA All Stars being chosen.

Names in bold had been selected into All-NBA Team.
