NBA Draft
 < 1959 1961 > 

The 1960 NBA Draft was the 14th annual draft of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The draft was held on April 11, 1960 prior to the 1960–61 season. In this draft, eight NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players. In each round, the teams select in reverse order of their win-loss record in the previous season. The Minneapolis Lakers participated in the draft, but relocated to Los Angeles, California and became the Los Angeles Lakers prior to the start of the season.[1] The draft consisted of 21 rounds with 100 players selected.

Oscar Robertson from the University of Cincinnati was selected before the draft as Cincinnati Royals' territorial pick. However, Robertson was also recognized as the first pick in the first round of the draft as the Cincinnati Royals also held the first overall draft pick.[2][3] Robertson went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award in his first season.[4] Three players from this draft, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West and Lenny Wilkens, have been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame.[5]
