NBA RAFT REPORT CARD

and Draft Results By Team

 NBA Draft | Player Ranking | Stat Projections | Draft News

Atlanta

   
5

Shelden Williams

Duke

Williams should give the Hawks what they expect, solid rebounding, defense, and some occasional dunks.  Maybe a 10 and 8 guy. But that's no spot for a #5 pick..

C

33

Solomon Jones

South Florida

Boston    
21

Rajon Rondo

Kentucky

A lot of questions about what direction the C's are going.. mainly are they trying to get Iverson? Hard to judge them now.. but Rondo has top 10 athleticism.

B

49

Leon Powe

California

Charlotte

   
3

Adam Morrison

Gonzaga

Hard to argue with this pick.  The best scorer in the Draft can averaged 10-15 ppg from opening day.

B+

Chicago

   
4

Tyrus Thomas

LSU

The Bulls got the players they wanted. In Thomas, they have an 8-10 point and 8-10 rebound guy, in Sefolosha they add another dynamic athlete to the roster.

A-

13

Thabo Sefolosha

Angelico Biella

Cleveland

   
25

Shannon Brown

Michigan State

People love the Brown pick because he was considered a possible Top 15 guy. But he dropped because outside of dunking and hitting college threes, Brown doesn't handle well, doesn't have a mid-range game and has many flaws in his game. I don't see Gibson contributing.

 

42

Daniel Gibson

Texas

B

55

Ejike Ugboaja

Nigeria

 

Dallas

 

 

28

Maurice Ager

Michigan State

Ager only went 3 picks behind his MSU teammate and has a similar skill set.  Like Brown, he's a solid but unspectacular pick.  Pinnock could help on defense.

C+

58

Danilo Pinnock

Geo. Washington

Denver

It's no fun to trade your lone pick..

C

Detroit

   
60

Will Blalock

Iowa State

Blalock seems destined for Europe or the D-League, but was worth a flier.

C+

Golden St

   
9

Patrick O'Bryant

Bradley

The Warriors seem to like risky picks, and O'Bryant is certainly a risk. But he has the potential to be one of the best handful of players from this Draft.. we'll need to wait and see. B+
38

Kosta Perovic

Partizan Belgrade

Houston    
32

Steve Novak

Marquette

I think Novak will be a rare second round guy that sticks in the NBA for many years.  But I do not like at all sacrificing the most talented guy in the Draft for a one or two year boost from 34 wins to 40 wins..

D+

44

Lior Eliyahu

Galil Elyon

Indiana    
17

Shawne Williams

Memphis

Williams is an interesting risk/reward guy with similar skills to last year's #2 pick Marvin Williams.  White is a freak athlete who can play D and run the wings as well as anyone.  Better than most teams.

B+

31

James White

Cincinnati

LA Clippers    
34

Paul Davis

Michigan State

Clippers did well with Ewing in Rd 2 last year. Davis can also be a solid bench contributor, while Diaz is perhaps the most physically gifted point guard in the Draft.

B

52

Guillermo Diaz

Miami

LA Lakers

   
26

Jordan Farmar UCLA

After a long-term project in Bynum last year, Farmar is a bit safer but projects to be a backup. I wont make believe like I know what Samb can do.

C+

51

Cheik Samb

Senegal

Memphis    
8

Rudy Gay

UCONN

For me, this is what the Draft is all about.  Trading a mediocre Battier (10 & 5 guy), for the most talented (though risky) player in the Draft.  With 24, the Grizzlies still got the backup point guard they wanted, and Johnson is more physically gifted than most players at the 45th position.

A+

24

Kyle Lowry

Villanova

45

Alexander Johnson

Florida State

Miami No picks.. were traded for Shaq. INC.
Milwaukee    
39

David Noel

UNC

Noel tested as the Draft's best athlete.  But he's destined to be a 12th man at best.  Markota probably has more potential and was worth a shot.

C+

 

59

Damir Markota

Cibona

Minnesota

   
6

Randy Foye

Villanova

Foye is more NBA-ready than most of the first round picks, and could develop into a solid 12 point, 5 assist guy.  He doesn't seem to have star power, but he's a much smaller risk than guys like Gay or Bargnani. Jones could be one of the few second rounders to contribute, due to his solid defense and finishing skills, and Smith adds another mature body down low.

C+

Craig Smith

Boston College

37

Bobby Jones

Washington

57 L. Mavrokefalidis PAOK Greece
New Jersey    
22

Marcus Williams UCONN

Williams slipped right into the Nets hands, and he seems to be a steal with the 22nd pick.  He would get an A in my book.  Boone on the other hand, seems to be a mediocre bench contributor at best and would get a C. The two average out to a B.  Adams should be better than he is.

B

23

Josh Boone

UCONN

54

Hassan Adams

Arizona

New Orleans/OKC

   
12

Hilton Armstrong

UCONN

The Hornets wanted big men, and they got their big men.  Armstrong was often lost in the UConn mix, but he can rebound and play defense, which is exactly what this team needs.  Simmons is more of a project, but has real offensive possibilities and has an ideal PF's body.  Vinicius was another solid pick. Good Draft overall.

A-

15

Cedric Simmons

NC State

43

Marcus Vinicius

Sao Carlos

New York    
20

Renaldo Balkman South Carolina

Obviously, Balkman is the big surprise here.  As others have stated, if he went 40th, it would be a fine pick.  Collins as well, may very well have dropped into the 2nd round.  These guys are the least of the Knicks worries.  A joke roster and a joke management are the real issues.

C-

29

Mardy Collins

Temple

Orlando    
11

JJ Redick

Duke

JJ is a no-brainer for the Magic, who are building a team with nice pieces all-around.  Redick has range to continue to hit shots at the NBA level (a rarity these days).  Augustine projects to be a solid 2nd-round contributor, while Hollins has the body (though not the game yet) of an NBA big man.  
41 James Augustine Illinois B
50

Ryan Hollins

UCLA

 
Philadelphia    
16 Rodney Carney Memphis Like the Celtics, this pick depends on what they do with Iverson. As is, the need for both Carney and Iguodala is not there. C
Phoenix Suns traded their first round pick for nothing..

F

Portland

   
2

LaMarcus Aldridge

Texas

When all is said and done, the Blazers came out of the Draft with 4 solid picks.  Aldridge and Roy are two of the safest bets of the Draft, and the Blazers need safe bets.  In Rodriguez, they get a possible late 1st round gem, who has the raw flair of Telfair.  Freeland is an obvious project, but the Blazers brought in enough guys already to worry about the Englishman later.

B+

Brandon Roy

Washington

Quincy Douby

Rutgers

Douby is a slightly small and better version of other Kings like Garcia and Martin.  I like Douby's scoring, but the Kings still lack direction.

B

San Antonio

Traded their pick to Milwaukee.

C

Seattle

   
10

Moh. Saer Sene

Verviers Pepinster

Seattle takes raw big men like they're going out of style.  Saer Sene is a slightly better prospect than Dasagan Diop.  His physical attributes can't be denied, but what do they do with Swift and Petro?  Brown hasn't improved a lick since the day he walked onto UConn's campus.

Andrea Bargnani

Benetton Treviso

Bargnani was the guy Toronto wanted all along.  He's not Dirk, but he's also more NBA-ready than most give him credit for.  I like risky, high-reward picks (like Gay), and Bargnani fits the bill.  Tucker was a beast in college and size questions will always linger, but he could come in and play 15 minutes a game from day one.

B

35

PJ Tucker

Texas

56

Edin Bavcic

Utah

   
14

Ronnie Brewer

Arkansas

The pick of Brewer here is a no-brainer.  His production should be similar to, or outpace the #7 pick Foye, and he's also right there with #6 Roy in terms of talent.  Jazz get points for reuniting Brown with Williams, though i don't see him or Millsap panning out at the NBA level.

Dee Brown

Illinois

B+
47

Paul Millsap

 Louisiana Tech

 
Washington    
18 Olexsiy Pecherov Paris Racing People always compare Pecherov to Keith Van Horn.. but lets hope he's not nearly as soft as the Dallas veteran.  Still, the kid can shoot and will probably be one of the Top 10 scorers from the Draft. B-
