(Team, Player(s) picked, Comment)
Alan Henderson, Donnie Boyce, Troy Brown, Cuonzo Martin
Henderson is steady and dependable, if unspectacular. Just what the Hawks should expect at No. 16.
Eric Williams, Junior Burrough
Williams' stock rose at predraft camps, although speculation had him going later. Should give Dominique Wilkins help.
The Hornets filled a backcourt hole by getting Kendall Gill Tuesday. That allowed them to reach for Zidek.
Jason Caffey, Dragan Tarlac
The Magic wanted Caffey to back up Horace Grant. The Bulls may ask him to replace Grant. Tarlac is impressive shooter.
Bob Sura, Donny Marshall
Sura thought he was going earlier and to a team in need of a guard, i.e. Boston. Cavs need a backup guard.
Cherokee Parks, Loren Meyer
Mavs get a yin-and-yang center combo. Parks has finesse and Meyer is a banger. Parks could also be a forward.
Antonio McDyess, Anthony Pelle
Do we see a strong playoff run in the near future? McDyess teamed with Dikembe Mutombo could be awesome.
Theo Ratliff, Randolph Childress Lou Roe, Don Reid
Ratliff gives Detroit some needed size. Childress is likely headed to Portland for Otis Thorpe.
J. Smith, A. DeClercq, D.Whitfield, M.Lewis, M.McDonald
He's no Shaq. He's not even a Glenn Robinson. But Smith was the best choice available. DeClercq will be a solid role player.
Like the Magic, Houston wanted a forward/center for depth. Except Houston had to wait until pick No. 41. Meek is a reach.
Travis Best, Fred Hoiberg
The Pacers lose Byron Scott in the expansion draft, so this was the next-Best thing. Hoiberg is a shooter.
Brent Barry, Constantin Popa
Clippers still the Clippers. Pass on Stackhouse, give up McDyess and get a couple of midrange players instead.
L.A. gave up two '97 second-round picks to get King, the nation's second-leading scorer. May play point guard.
Kurt Thomas, George Banks
Thomas was third player in NCAA history to lead nation in scoring and rebounding. Replaces John Salley.
Shawn Respert, Rashard Griffith, Eric Snow
Nice inside-out combination for the Bucks. Respert was the draft's best shooter and Griffith is a premier shot blocker.
Kevin Garnett, Mark Davis, Jerome Allen
Give credit to Kevin McHale for taking a gamble and picking a high school star. And give him grief in 1999 if it was a bomb.
There are questions about stability of O'Bannon's left knee. Otherwise, he's wonderful. Contrast to Jersey's usual whiners.
Orlando fulfills its need. Vaughn was among Magic's top hopes and should give much-needed depth up front.
There was talk of Philly trading up to get Stackhouse. Instead, it stayed put and still got the next "Next Jordan."
Michael Finley, Mario Bennett, Chris Carr
Neither Bennett nor Finley looks like a starter. So the Suns better hope Barkley and Manning return intact.
Final tally on Portland's two trades: Give up pick Nos. 17 and 18 to get Trent at No. 11 and a '96 first-rounder.
Corliss Williamson, Dejan Bodiroga, Tyus Edney
Great potential. Williamson would have been a top-five pick in '94 but stock dropped. Edney is tiny, but a tremendous talent.
Alexander is small but can play both guard positions. Missed the '93-'94 season with broken ankle.
Sherell Ford, Zyndrunas Ilgauskas
Ford averaged 26 points as a senior and was MVP of a predraft camp but slipped to No. 26. Could be a sleeper.
Damon Stoudamire, Jimmy King
Choice of Stoudamire means B. J. Armstrong is gone. Few had him this high, but Isiah Thomas should know point guards.
Ostertag is a 7-footer. He's also a 7-footer. In other words, he'll block shots, draw fouls and get the sporadic dunk.
Bryant Reeves, Lawrence Moten
Reeves was the best true center in the draft. Which doesn't say a lot about the big men. Moten is a pure scorer.
Rasheed Wallace, Terrence Rencher
The Bullets need a point guard, but none was worthy of No. 4 pick. So Wallace could be dealt to get a guard.
The New York Knicks did not have picks in the draft.
