The 1964 NBA draft was the 18th annual draft of the National Basketball Association (NBA). 1964 NBA draft_sentence_0

The draft was held on May 4, 1964, before the 1964–65 season. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_1

In this draft, nine NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_2

A player who had finished his four-year college eligibility was eligible for selection. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_3

If a player left college early, he would not be eligible for selection until his college class graduated. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_4

In each round, the teams select in reverse order of their win–loss record in the previous season. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_5

Before the draft, a team could forfeit its first-round draft pick and then select any player from within a 50-mile (80 km) radius of its home arena as their territorial pick. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_6

The draft consisted of 15 rounds comprising 101 players selected. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_7

Reed has been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame as a player and was also named in the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History list announced at the league's 50th anniversary in 1996. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_11

Reed, who spent all of his 10-year playing career with the Knicks, won the NBA championships twice in 1970 and 1973. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_12

In both NBA Finals, he was named as the Finals MVP. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_13

He also won the Most Valuable Player Award in 1970 and was selected to five All-NBA Teams and seven All-Star Games. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_14

He became a head coach after ending his playing career. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_15

He coached the Knicks for two seasons and then the New Jersey Nets for two seasons. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_16

Paul Silas, the 10th pick, won three NBA championships, two with the Boston Celtics in 1974 and 1976 and one with the Seattle SuperSonics in 1979. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_17

He also had two All-Star Game selections. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_18

After his playing career, he coached four NBA teams, most recently with the Charlotte Bobcats (now Charlotte Hornets). 1964 NBA draft_sentence_19

Jerry Sloan, the 19th pick, was selected to two All-Star Games in his playing career before becoming a head coach. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_20

He coached the Chicago Bulls for three seasons before being fired during the 1981–82 season. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_21

He then became the head coach of the Utah Jazz in 1988, the position he held until resigning in early 2011. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_22

He has been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_23

Hazzard, 2nd pick Joe Caldwell, 4th pick Lucious Jackson and 5th pick Jeff Mullins are the only other players from this draft who have been selected to an All-Star Game. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_24

John Thompson, the 25th pick, has also been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Hame as a coach. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_25

After finishing his playing career, he became a successful college basketball head coach at Georgetown University. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_26

He coached the Georgetown Hoyas for 27 seasons, winning the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championship in 1984 and becoming the first African American head coach to win a major collegiate championship. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_27

Aside from playing basketball, 12th pick Cotton Nash also played professional baseball in the Major League Baseball (MLB). 1964 NBA draft_sentence_28

He played baseball for three seasons in between his basketball career. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_29

He is one of only 12 athletes who have played in both NBA and MLB. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_30

Also of note was a player who was officially undrafted in 1964 named Connie Hawkins. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_31

While a successful player overall, Hawkins during his freshman year at the University of Iowa back in 1961 was involved with a point shaving scandal. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_32

Despite never being convicted of point shaving (with the only involvement being him borrowing $200 by Jack Molinas for school expenses, which he paid back to Jack's brother, Fred Molinas, before the scandal broke out), he was officially kicked out of the team before having a chance to play due to NCAA rules and regulations at the time. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_33

Hawkins would later play with the Pittsburgh Rens of the rivaling American Basketball League and the independent Harlem Globetrotters before officially being undrafted in 1964. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_34

He became undrafted again in 1965 before being permanently banned from the NBA altogether in 1966. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_35

However, Hawkins would sue the NBA for $6 million in damages to his reputation, saying the league banned him unfairly and that they had no substantial evidence linking him to the point shaving scandal of that time. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_36

Eventually, the league settled with Hawkins by paying him a settlement of $1.3 million and assigning him to the Phoenix Suns in 1969, effectively removing his permanent ban. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_37

While he would only play in the NBA for seven seasons afterwards, his number would be retired by the Suns on November 19, 1976 before being in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992. 1964 NBA draft_sentence_38
