The 2002 NBA Draft was held on June 26, 2002 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. In this draft, National Basketball Association (NBA) teams took turns selecting 57 amateur college basketball players and other first-time eligible players, such as players from non-North American leagues. The draft was broadcast on TNT at 7:30 PM (EDT). The NBA announced that 42 college and high school players, and five international players had filed as early-entry candidates for the draft. The Chicago Bulls and the Golden State Warriors both had a 22.5 percent probability of acquiring the first overall pick, but the Houston Rockets, with an 8.9 percent probability, won the NBA Draft Lottery on May 19. The Bulls and Warriors were second and third, respectively. As punishment for salary-cap violations during the 2000-01 season, the Minnesota Timberwolves forfeited their first-round draft pick.

The 2002 draft set a record with 17 international selections, with six coming in the first round alone.
