NBA Draft
 < 1994 1996 > 

The 1995 NBA Draft took place on June 28, 1995 at SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It marked the first NBA draft for the two Canadian expansion teams, Toronto Raptors and Vancouver Grizzlies. One of this class' draftees (and future league MVP), Kevin Garnett, is notable for being the first player in two decades to be selected straight out of high school.

This draft was also notable for one of the biggest busts in NBA history, Ed O'Bannon.[1] O'Bannon had received national accolades for leading the UCLA Bruins to the NCAA Championship, but only played two years in the NBA.
