TTT Answer

For the first time since 2000 and 2001, the NBA has conducted consecutive drafts without a Memphis Tiger being chosen. (Will Barton was the last Tiger taken, in the second round of the 2012 draft.)

What is the longest consecutive-year streak for Tigers drafted into the NBA?

At least one Tiger was chosen in five consecutive NBA drafts, from 1984 to 1988.

• 1984: Bobby Parks (3rd round), Doom Haynes (6th)
• 1985: Keith Lee (1st)
• 1986: William Bedford (1st), Baskerville Holmes (3rd), Andre Turner (3rd)
• 1987: Vincent Askew (2nd)
• 1988: Sylvester Gray (2nd), Dwight Boyd (3rd)

NOTE: The NBA draft was reduced to two rounds in 1989.
