2005 NBA Draft Results

The NBA held the 2005 NBA Draft on June 28th, 2005. The draft took place at the Theater located at Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. During the draft there were 49 college and high school players as well as 11 international players who were considered early-entry candidates to be picked by one of the NBA teams. This would be the final draft that players could apply directly out of high school. Starting with the 2006 NBA draft, the minimum age became 19 by the end of the draft year to include being one year removed from high school for United States players. For international participants, the age rule was similarly changed. The 2005 NBA Draft has seen its fair share of standout players as well as NBA Draft busts. Some of the notable players from the draft who have gone on to star in the NBA include Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Andrew Bynum, and Nate Robinson.
