second round #42 "Houston (from Vancouver through Washington and Orlando)" per AP

Randy Livingston
43 2-14
Suns
  Ben Davis
Spurs

 

Unknown.

 

Not sure if this pick went directly from Suns > Spurs or if there was another team in between. We originally had this as the Suns simply using their natural pick, but the Suns media guide indicates that the Suns acquired the 1996 second round pick used to select Ben Davis (this pick) from the Spurs for Negele Knight on 1993-11-10. That would assume either the Suns traded it away previously or the Suns media guide is in error.

Suns

 

Traded Negele Knight to Spurs for second round pick (1994 #29-Antonio Lang) on 1993-11-08

 

Every newspaper account of this trade says Suns traded Negele Knight to Suns for a future second round pick (year not specified) on 1993-11-08

 

Spurs media guide says the pick involved was a 1994 second rounder

 

Suns media guide says Suns traded Negele Knight to Spurs for 1996 second round pick on 1993-11-10 (we believe this to be in error)
