The 1999-2000 season was the Wizards' 39th season in the NBA. In the 1999 NBA Draft, the Wizards selected Richard Hamilton with the seventh pick. The Wizards continued to underachieve finishing last place in the Atlantic Division with a 29–53 record. However, the biggest news would involve the front office as Michael Jordan joined the team as Vice President. Following the season, Jordan would begin to influence personal decisions as Leonard Hamilton was hired as head coach. Also following the season, Tracy Murray signed as a free agent with the Denver Nuggets.
