Definitions for "1986 NBA Draft"
The 1986 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).
