Before you read this, take into consideration that my grade is based on the pick, not the player. Also, if the player was traded I graded the pick as if the team he was traded to picked him. Overall a great draft, so not too many bad grades.

1 Washington Wizards- John Wall, PG

A great pick for Washington that everyone saw coming. Wall’s handles and ability to take it to the basket can turn this franchise around. Now the question is: Will the Wizards trade Arenas?

NBA Comparison: Derrick Rose
Grade: A+

2 Philadelphia 76ers- Evan Turner, SG

Another one everyone saw coming, and another great pick. Turner’s handles and shooting ability mixed with Iguodala’s driving ability will be them a deadly combo.

NBA Comparison: Brandon Roy
Grade: A

3 New Jersey Nets- Derrick Favors, PF

Yet again, people saw this coming, but was another good pick. Favors is great in the post and can play on both ends of the court. A good pick to start to turn the franchise around.

NBA Comparison: Al Jefferson
Grade: A

4 Minnesota Timberwolves- Wesley Johnson, SF
