The 2010 Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) rookie draft was an event held at Market! Market! in Taguig City on August 29, 2010 that allowed PBA teams to draft players from the amateur ranks. Players who applied for the draft went through a rookie camp that lasted a week. The San Miguel Beermen were the only team that did not have a single pick in the draft.
The lottery was held on August 6, 2010 before the start of the 2010 PBA Fiesta Conference Finals at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. The Air21 Express beat the statistical odds by winning the first overall pick against Barako Energy Coffee Masters (draft pick was already acquired by Talk 'N Text during the draft lottery).
