NBA Draft Grades-Pacific Division

Lakers- I love the Darius Morris pick, not only does he fill a need but he gives them great size at the PG position standing 6’5. He’s a true PG and that will help the Lakers immediately. Andrew Goudelock should provide scoring punch off the bench, he might just be the best shooter in the draft from deep. They selected Ater Majok with their “reach” pick, Majok was a former Uconn Husky and is extremely raw. Grade: B+

Phoenix-Landed Markieff Morris, should fit nice next Robin Lopez with his ability to stretch the floor via his jump shot. Grade: B

Golden State-Klay Thompson, Charles Jenkins, and Jeremy Tyler should all be able to help immediately. Thompson and Jenkins form a great second unit backcourt. Tyler gives them some much needed size and athleticism on the block. Grade: A

Clippers-No 1st round picks, so the Clippers selected Georgia teammates Travis Leslie and Trey Thompkins with their 2nd round picks. I believe both of these kids will surprise people, the Clippers picked up 2 guys with good upside. Can never have enough depth. Grade: B

Sacramento-Jimmer Fredette, Tyler Honeycutt, Isiah Thomas are 3 guys with the potential and ability to provide an instant impact. If the Kings improve, you can look back at this year’s draft as the reason why.
