The 1990 NBA Draft took place on June 27, 1990 in New York City, New York. This draft produced only one perennial All-Star (Gary Payton). Among the 54 picks, Payton is the only player to appear in more than one All-Star game, and he is a likely candidate for the Hall of Fame. Names in bold represent players who have been selected for the All-NBA Team.

The player projected to be the top pick by many media outlets and draft analysts was Loyola Marymount's Hank Gathers. Gathers died of a heart attack while playing in the West Coast Conference semifinal game on March 4, 1990.
