The 1996 NBA Draft was the 54th draft in the National Basketball Association. It was held on June 26, 1996 in East Rutherford, New Jerseymarker. It is widely considered to be one of the deepest and most talented NBA drafts in history, with over one-third of the first round picks, as well as the undrafted Ben Wallace, later becoming NBA All-Stars. The draft contained three players that won NBA MVP awards (Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash) and seven other All-Stars (Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Ray Allen, Žydrūnas Ilgauskas, Stephon Marbury, Jermaine O'Neal, Peja Stojaković, Antoine Walker). Moreover, seven players from this draft, plus Wallace, have been named to at least one All-NBA Team, the most among any draft. The draft class also produced two future Defensive Players of the Year in Wallace (a four-time winner of this award) and Marcus Camby (2007).

SLAM Magazine named this the best NBA Draft of all time. HOOP Magazine named it the second-best, behind the 1984 draft, whose highlights included Hakeem Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and John Stockton. Most experts rate it along with the 1984 NBA Draft and 2003 NBA Draft as one of the best drafts in history.
