The 1992-93 New Jersey Nets season was the Nets' 26th season in the National Basketball Association, and 17th season in East Rutherford, New Jersey.[1] The Nets hired Chuck Daly as head coach, acquired Rumeal Robinson from the Atlanta Hawks, and signed free agents Rick Mahorn and Jayson Williams during the offseason. Under Daly, the Nets continued to improve getting off to a solid 31-24 start, before losing second-year star Kenny Anderson for the remainder of the season to a wrist injury.[2] Midway through the season, the Nets signed free agents Maurice Cheeks and former New York Knicks star Bernard King. Despite losing ten of their final eleven games, they finished third in the Atlantic Division with a 43-39 record. The club qualified for the playoffs, but were eliminated in the first round by the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games.

Following the season, tragedy struck as scoring leader Dra?en Petrovi? died in an automobile accident in Germany on June 7, 1993.[3] Also following the season, Sam Bowie was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, Chris Dudley signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Portland Trail Blazers, and King and Cheeks both retired.
