The 2007 NBA Draft was held on June 28, 2007 at the WaMu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. It was broadcast on television in 115 countries.[1] In this draft, National Basketball Association (NBA) teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players.

Freshman Greg Oden from the Ohio State University was drafted first overall by the Portland Trail Blazers, who won the draft lottery.[2] However, he missed the 2007–08 season due to microfracture surgery on his right knee during the pre-season.[3] Another freshman, Kevin Durant, was drafted second overall from the University of Texas by the Seattle SuperSonics,[4] and went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award for the 2007–08 season.[5] Oden and Durant became the first freshmen to be selected with the top two picks in the draft.[6] Al Horford, the son of former NBA player Tito Horford, was drafted third by the Atlanta Hawks.[7]

On the night after the draft, the Seattle SuperSonics traded seven-time All-Star Ray Allen along with the draft rights of the 35th pick Glen Davis to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak and the draft rights to the 5th pick Jeff Green.[8] The Portland Trail Blazers and the New York Knicks were also involved in a multi-player trade that sent Zach Randolph to the Knicks and Steve Francis to the Blazers.[9] Apart from those two trades, nine further draft-day trades were announced.[10]

The 2007 Draft marked the first time three players drafted in the top 10 came from the same school: the University of Florida.[11] Florida, the 2007 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Basketball champion, tied the record set by the University of Connecticut in 2006 with five players selected in the first two rounds of an NBA draft.[12] Florida joined nine other schools, including Connecticut, that had five players selected in an NBA draft, second only to the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, who had six players selected in the eight-round 1977 Draft.[13][12] Five players who competed in the 2007 NCAA Basketball National Championship Final were selected in the top 10; three players came from Florida, and two players came from the runner-up, Ohio State University.[14] This draft also set the record number of freshmen drafted in the first round when eight freshmen were selected.[15] Of the 60 players drafted, 8 were freshmen, 5 were sophomores, 14 were juniors, 20 were seniors, and 13 were international players without U.S. college basketball experience. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors were the only NBA teams who did not have a draft pick this year, although Indiana and Toronto each acquired a drafted player's rights after the draft.[10]

Eligibility

The basic requirements for draft eligibility are:

  • All drafted players must be at least 19 years of age during the calendar year of the draft (i.e., born on or before December 31, 1988).[16]
  • Any player who is not an "international player", as defined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), must be at least one year removed from the graduation of his high school class.[16]

The CBA defines "international players" as players who permanently resided outside the U.S. for three years before the draft, did not complete high school in the U.S., and have never enrolled at a U.S. college or university.[17]

The basic requirement for automatic eligibility for a U.S. player is the completion of his college eligibility.[18] Players who meet the CBA definition of "international players" are automatically eligible if their 22nd birthday falls during or before the calendar year of the draft (i.e., born on or before December 31, 1985).[19]

A player who is not automatically eligible must declare his eligibility for the draft by notifying the NBA offices in writing no later than 60 days before the draft.[20][21] An early entry candidate is allowed to withdraw his eligibility for the draft by notifying the NBA offices in writing no later than 10 days before the draft.[22] On June 19, 2007, NBA announced that 32 college players and 6 international players had filed as early-entry candidates for the 2007 Draft, while 46 players who had previously declared as early entry candidates had withdrawn from the draft.[23]

Draft Lottery

The first 14 picks in the draft belonged to teams that had missed the playoffs; the order was determined through a lottery. The lottery would determine the three teams that would obtain the first three picks on the draft. The remaining first-round picks and the second-round picks were assigned to teams in reverse order of their win-loss record in the previous season. On April 20, 2007, the NBA performed a tie-breaker to determine the order of the picks for teams with identical win-loss record.[24]

The lottery was held on May 22, 2007 in Secaucus, New Jersey. The Portland Trail Blazers, who had the seventh-worst record in the previous season, won the lottery with just a 5.3% chance to win.[25] This was the fourth time that the Blazers had the first overall draft pick and the first time that the Blazers won the draft lottery since it was introduced in 1985.[26] The Seattle SuperSonics, who had the fifth-worst record, and the Atlanta Hawks, who had the fourth-worst record, obtained the second and third pick respectively.[25]

Three teams who had the worst records—the Memphis Grizzlies, the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks—obtained the fourth, fifth and sixth pick respectively. These were the lowest possible picks they could have obtained through the lottery.[27] The most recent draft in which the three worst teams did not receive the top three picks was in 1993.[28]

Below were the chances for each team to get specific picks in the 2007 Draft Lottery, rounded to 3 decimal places:[29][30][31]

^ a: Joakim Noah holds both United States and French citizenship. He was born in the United States and he obtained French citizenship on April 2007 through his French father. Additionally, he can also claim Swedish citizenship through his mother and Cameroonian citizenship through his paternal grandfather.[40]
^ b: Yi Jianlian's year of birth has been widely disputed, with several sources claiming that Chinese basketball authorities falsified his year of birth from 1984 to 1987 to allow him a longer period of competition in international junior tournaments. A dedicated section of Yi's Wikipedia article discusses this issue and includes sources.
