The 1999 NBA Draft was held on June 30, 1999 at the MCI Center (now Verizon 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.
