The 1999 NBA Draft was held on June 30, 1999, at the MCI Center (now Capital One Arena) 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. It is widely viewed as one of the best draft classes, with a total of nine future NBA All-Stars being chosen, as well as three winners of the NBA Sixth Man of the Year AwardManu Ginóbili, Jason Terry, and Lamar Odom. Undrafted Pablo Prigioni made his NBA debut at 2012/2013 season as the oldest rookie in league history, at age 35.
