The 1995-96 NBA season was the Bullets' 35th season in the National Basketball Association.[1] During the offseason, the Bullets acquired All-Star guard Mark Price from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Robert Pack from the Denver Nuggets, and signed free agents Tim Legler and Chris Whitney. In his second season, Juwan Howard emerged as a star on the court and in the community, averaging 22.1 points per game while being selected to the 1996 NBA All-Star Game. However, Injuries would be an issue as Chris Webber was limited to 15 games following the lingering effect to his injured shoulder.[2] Meanwhile, Price only appeared in just seven games due to a sore left heel, and Pack who played in 31 games was out with nerve damage in his right leg.

After a 7-game winning streak, the Bullets lost their final four games and finished fourth in the Atlantic Division with a 39-43 record, which was an impressive 18-game improvement over their previous season. However, they missed the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season. 7'7" center Gheorghe Mure?an was named Most Improved Player of The Year, and top draft pick Rasheed Wallace made the All-Rookie Second Team.

Following the season, Wallace was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, Pack was dealt to the New Jersey Nets, Price signed as a free agent with the Golden State Warriors while his brother Brent Price signed with the Houston Rockets, and second-year center Jim McIlvaine signed with the Seattle SuperSonics.
