Atlanta -
Draft Picks Added: Bradley Beal, Arnett Moultrie, Henry Sims
Signed: Joe Johnson, Al Horford, Marvin Williams, Zaza Pachulia, Jeff Teague
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO): Kirk Hinrich, Tracy McGrady, Jason Collins, Vladimir Radmanovic, Jerry Stackhouse, Jannero Pargo, Willie Green, Erick Dampier, Ivan Johnson

Traded JSmith for #7 pick Beal. That was a negative move for now, but Beal could be a real good SG.

Grade - D

Chicago -
Draft Picks Added: Will Barton
Signed - Carlos Boozer, Derrick Williams, Wesley Johnson, Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton, Kyle Korver, Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson, Jimmy Butler
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Derrick Rose, CJ Watson, Omer Asik, Brian Scalabrine, John Lucas, Mike James

The draft pick Barton is alright at that spot. Traded Deng for DWilliams and Wes Johnson which is negative for now, b ut could be a great move for the future if both players work out well.

Grade - D

Houston -
Draft Picks Added: Terrence Ross, Moe Harkless
Signed - Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Kyle Lowry, Marcus Morris, Chandler Parsons
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Marcus Camby, Samuel Dalembert, Courtney Lee, Goran Dragic, Patrick Patterson, Chase Budinger, Earl Boykins, Greg Smith, Courtney Fortson, Diamon Simpson

Good draft picks that could fit, but really need to replace free agents like Budinger.

Grade - B

Orlando -
Draft Picks Added: Dion Waiters, William Buford
Signed - Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, Glen Davis, Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon, Quentin Richardson, Justin Harper
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Ryan Anderson, Earl Clark, Daniel Orton, Ishmael Smith, DeAndre Liggins

Waiters was picked far later than in the real draft, so could be a steal, but whether he is any real good will have to be seen.

Grade - B

Washington -
Draft Picks Added: Andre Drummond, Jared Cunningham
Signed - Rashard Lewis, Nenê, Andray Blatche, John Wall, Jan Vesely, Kevin Seraphin, Chris Singleton, Trevor Booker, Jordan Crawford
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Brian Cook, Maurice Evans, Shelvin Mack, Cartier Martin, Morris Almond, James Singleton

Drummond is the most iffy player in all the draft. Some think he could be great, others a bust.

Grade - C

LA Clippers - Ognjen Kuzmic
Draft Picks Added:
Signed - Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan, Caron Butler, Blake Griffin, Ryan Gomes, Eric Bledsoe
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Mo Williams, Randy Foye, Nick Young, Chauncey Billups, Kenyon Martin, Reggie Evans, Bobby Simmons, Travis Leslie, Trey Thompkins

Late pick, hard to tell what he gives.

Grade - D

Memphis -
Draft Picks Added: Tony Wroten
Signed - Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Tony Allen, Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter, Jeremy Pargo, Josh Selby
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - OJ Mayo, Marreese Speights, Darrell Arthur, Hamed Haddadi, Gilbert Arenas, Lester Hudson

Memphis said they wanted him and actually picked him in the real draft. He might fit.

Grade - C

Milwaukee -
Draft Picks Added: Tyler Zeller, Jae Crowder
Signed - Monta Ellis, Beno Udrih, Drew Gooden, Luc Mbah a Moute, Mike Dunleavy, Ekpe Udoh, Brandon Jennings, Larry Sanders, Tobias Harris, Jon Brockman
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Kwame Brown, Carlos Delfino, Shaun Livingston, Ersan Ilyasova,
Jon Leuer

They needed a Center to replace Bogut and got one of the best in the draft. Crowder was also a good pick.

Grade - A

New Jersey (Brooklyn) -
Draft Picks Added:
Signed - Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro, Marshon Brooks, Jordan Williams
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, Jordan Farmar, Brook Lopez, DeShawn Stevenson, Damion James, Shelden Williams, Sundiata Gaines, Gerald Green, Armon Johnson

No Grade.

Sacramento -
Draft Picks Added: Harrison Barnes, Doron Lamb
Signed - Derrick Favors, John Salmons, Marcus Thornton, Francisco Garcia, Chuck Hayes, DeMarcus Cousins, Travis Outlaw, Jimmer Fredette, Isaiah Thomas
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Jason Thompson, Donte Greene, Tyler Honeycutt, Hassan Whiteside, Terrence Williams

Great trade to get a very good young big next to another one, adding Favors. Barnes fits right in at SF real well and the starting five looks quite good.

Grade - A


Won't do my teams, but think I did great turning one of the worst teams in Cleveland into what looks like a certain playoff team and doing the same thing with Minnesota.

Charlotte -
Draft Picks Added: Thomas Robinson, Kris Middleton
Signed - Corey Maggette, Tyrus Thomas, Bismack Biyombo, Reggie Williams, Kemba Walker, Gerald Henderson, BJ Mullens
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - DeSagana Diop, Matt Carroll, DJ Augustin, Eduardo Najera, DJ White, Derrick Brown, Cory Higgins, Jamario Moon

Great pick.

Grade - A

Detroit -
Draft Picks Added: Miles Plumlee, Tomas Satoransky
Signed - Paul Pierce, Avery Bradley, Rodney Stuckey, Charlie Villanueva, Jonas Jerebko, Will Bynum, Brandon Knight
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Jason Maxiell, Greg Monroe, Ben Wallace, Austin Daye, Damien Wilkins, Vernon Macklin, Walker Russell Jr

Two pretty good picks, but has to be seen.

Grade - C

Golden State -
Draft Picks Added: Michael Kidd Gilchrist, Jefferey Taylor, John Jenkins, Izzet Turkyilmaz
Signed - Andrew Bogut, David Lee, Richard Jefferson, Dorell Wright, Stephen Curry, Jeremy Tyler, Luke Walton
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Brandon Rush, Nate Robinson, Dominic McGuire, Charles Jenkins, Chris Wright, Mickell Gladness, Mikki Moore

Made a good trade in getting the #4 pick, which was used to pick MKG, but lost Klay, the starting SG, which has to be replaced. Other picks were pretty good at those positions.

Grade - B

Miami -
Draft Picks Added: Festus Ezeli
Signed - LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony, Shane Battier, James Jones, Norris Cole
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Juwan Howard, Eddy Curry, Dexter Pittman, Ronny Turiaf, Terrell Harris

Good pick that fits.

Grade - B

San Antonio -
Draft Picks Added: Tu Holloway
Signed - Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Tiago Splitter, Matt Bonner, Kawhi Leonard, Cory Joseph
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Tim Duncan, James Anderson, DeJuan Blair, Danny Green, Gary Neal, Boris Diaw, Patrick Mills, Derrick Byars

Late pick, might be alright.

Grade - D

New York -
Draft Picks Added: Justin Hamilton
Signed - Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Renaldo Balkman, Iman Shumpert, Toney Douglas, Jerome Jordan
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - JR Smith, Baron Davis, Mike Bibby, Jared Jeffries, Steve Novak, Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin, Josh Harrellson, Dan Gadzuric

Late pick that might be alright.

Grade - D

Dallas -
Draft Picks Added: Fab Melo, Kostas Papanikolaou
Signed - Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Brendan Haywood, Rodrigue Beaubois, Dominique Jones
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Jason Terry, Lamar Odom, Jason Kidd, Vince Carter, Brian Cardinal, Delonte West, Brandan Wright, Ian Mahinmi, Yi Jianlian, Kelenna Azubuike

Hard to judge Fab Melo, but he at least fills their need of Center.

Grade - C

New Orleans -
Draft Picks Added: Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Orlando Johnson
Signed - Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza, Jarrett Jack, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jason Smith, Xavier Henry, Greivis Vasquez
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Chris Kaman, Eric Gordon, Carl Landry, Marco Belinelli, Gustavo Ayon, Lance Thomas, Darryl Watkins, Jerome Dyson

Easy choice at #1, but a great pick, as was Lillard and fits right in.

Grade - A

Portland -
Draft Picks Added: Jared Sullinger, Jeremy Lamb, Draymond Green, Darius Miller
Signed - LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews, Luke Babbitt, Elliot Williams, Nolan Smith
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Raymond Felton, Hasheem Thabeet, Jamal Crawford, Jonny Flynn, Shawne Williams, Nicolas Batum, Kurt Thomas, Craig Smith, JJ Hickson, Joel Przybilla

Sullinger is the biggest question mark, not on skill, but health and how he will translate into the nba. Lamb was a pretty good pick and Green was a very good pick at that spot, Miller could be as well.

Grade - B

Toronto -
Draft Picks Added: Perry Jones III, Evan Fournier, Kevin Murphy
Signed - Jose Calderon, Andrea Bargnani, Amir Johnson, Linas Kleiza, DeMar DeRozan, Ed Davis, James Johnson, Gary Forbes
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Jerryd Bayless, Aaron Gray, Jamaal Magloire, Solomon Alabi, Alan Anderson, Ben Uzoh

Second biggest iffy player in this draft was Perry Jones and likely he was picked way to high.

Grade - D

8th Ave:
Boston -
Draft Picks Added: Myers Leonard, Royce White, Andrew Nicholson, Scott Machado
Signed - Tayshaun Prince, Ben Gordon, Rajon Rondo, JaJuan Johnson
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Brandon Bass, Keyon Dooling, Mickael Pietrus, Marquis Daniels, Aleksandar Pavlovic, Greg Stiemsma, E'Twaun Moore, Ryan Hollins, Sean Williams

Trade was better for Detroit in the short term as Pierce is a superstar type. Leonard was a great pick and fills need at Center. White was great pick also. Other two picks could be good also.

Grade - A

Indiana -
Draft Picks Added: Quincy Miller
Signed - Danny Granger, David West, Paul George, Tyler Hansbrough, Darren Collison, Jeff Pendergraph,
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Leandro Barbosa, Dahntay Jones, Roy Hibbert, Louis Amundson, George Hill, AJ Price, Lance Stephenson, Kyrylo Fesenk

Pretty good pick.

Grade - B

LA Lakers -
Draft Picks Added:
Signed - Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, Metta World Peace, Steve Blake, Josh McRoberts, Christian Eyenga,
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Ramon Sessions, Jordan Hill, Matt Barnes, Troy Murphy, Devin Ebanks, Andrew Goudelock, Darius Morris

No Grade

Philadelphia -
Draft Picks Added: John Henson, Kim Enlish, Robert Sacre
Signed - Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Nikola Vucevic,
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - Louis Williams, Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, Jrue Holiday, Craig Brackins, Tony Battie, Sam Young, Jodie Meeks, Lavoy Allen, Xavier Silas

Henson was needed and the other two picks could be good as well.

Grade - B

Utah -
Draft Picks Added: Mike Scott
Signed - Tyreke Evans, Al Jefferson, Devin Harris, Paul Millsap, Enes Kanter, Raja Bell, Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks, Earl Watson
FA or to be offered (TO, PO, QO) - CJ Miles, Josh Howard, Jamaal Tinsley, Jeremy Evans, DeMarre Carroll, Blake Ahearn

Trade may be good, but may have hinder Burks and/or Hayward. Tyreke may go well with Millsap and AJeff, but he lacks outside shooting though. Pick was late.
