The 1987 NBA Draft wasn’t very deep but there were hall of famers and all-stars available if a general manager drafted wisely.
The '87 draft was 161 picks over seven rounds with the first round consisting of 23 picks. Of the 161 players selected 55 of them played in the NBA according to basketball-reference.com. Of the 55 players to play in the NBA, Sarunas Marciulionis (sixth round, 127th overall) was the player taken with the lowest pick in the draft.
Here's how the draft would have gone if GMs knew then what they know now about all of the players: 23. Brad Lohaus, Iowa.
