Draft no.: 2nd overall
Draft year: 1989
Team: Los Angeles Clippers
Danny Ferry came right after Ellison, who you found earlier on this list. Ferry’s first fault was heading to Italy instead of playing for the Clippers, the team who drafted him. Eventually he returned to the NBA, and the Clippers traded his rights to the Cavs, who gave up Ron Harper. Ferry’s NBA career was underwhelming, with only two seasons in which he scored in double digits. He spent 13 seasons in the Association, and ended his career with 7.0 PPG and 2.8 rebounds. To think, the Clippers could have drafted Tim Hardaway or Shawn Kemp.
