The 1992–93 NBA season was the Bullets' 32nd season in the National Basketball Association. A year after being named Most Improved Player, Pervis Ellison who had a history of injuries played only 49 games. The Bullets struggled after a 7–10 start losing nine consecutive games in December. They lost their final five games of the season, finishing last place in the Atlantic Division with a 22–60 record. Top draft pick Tom Gugliotta made the All-Rookie First Team averaging 14.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. On March 19, 1993 against the Chicago Bulls, second-year guard LaBradford Smith scored a career high of 37 points against Michael Jordan. However, the Bullets lost to the Bulls 104–99. Following the season, Harvey Grant was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, and Charles Jones was released, where he would sign as a free agent with the Detroit Pistons during the next season.
