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.
