NBA Draft Grades-Atlantic Division

Boston-JaJuan Johnson is a good shot blocker and his former Purdue teammate E’twaun Moore is a complete shooting guard. Both of these kids should be able to get into the rotation and make an impact. Grade: B+

New York-Iman Shumpert is a big combo guard. Don’t know if he can run a team yet, but his talent on D makes him well worth the pick. Josh Harrleson fills a need for the Knicks, a bit undersized at 6’10 270 he should be able to play next to Amare providing defense, rebounding, and toughness. Grade: B

Philadelphia-Nikola Vucevic and LaVoy Allen, filled a need by selecting Vucevic. They need a true center, he’s 7ft and 260 pounds. That should allow the 76ers should slide Speights down to his natural position at PF. Grade: B

New Jersey- Marshon Brooks is the best shooting guard in this year’s draft in my opinion, he should also be able to step in right away and start along side. Bojan Bogdanovic is a talented small forward who was the second leading scorer in the Euro League this past season. Jordan Williams is an undersized center, but I see him as a good sized PF when paired with Brook Lopez can give the Nets a nice foundation in the paint for the future. Grade: A

Toronto- Selected Jonas Valacinus kind of reminds me of the guy that’s already there in Bargaini without the offensive talent. I hope I’m wrong, I had hoped the Raptors would have selected a true PG. Grade: C+
