- 37th pick: Nick Van Exel (L.A. Lakers)
- Van Exel last played in the NBA in the 2005-06 season with the Spurs. He was largely past it by that time, averaging only 5.5 points and 1.9 assists in that season, but his career averages of 14.4 points and 6.6 assists in 880 career games destroy most of the rest of this list. He is now an assistant coach at Texas Southern.
