NBA Draft Grades-Central Divison

Chicago-Don’t like the “reach” pick only because he plays the same position as Jimmy Butler. Heard that the Bulls want a veteran shooting guard, but it couldn’t of hurt to take a young guy with upside at the position. Grade: C+

Indiana-Acquired George Hill in trade with the Spurs, Hill should be able to provide an immediate impact and offer veteran leadership. Fills a big need with his ability to play both the 1 and 2. Grade: B

Milwaukee- Jon Leur is a 7 ft highly skilled F/C, Tobias Harris is a young SF with great upside. Also part of a 3-way trade that led to the departing of Corey Maggette and the arrival of Capt Jack aka Stephen Jackson. Grade: B+

Detroit- Selected well for where they were, however I’m not sure if Brandon Knight is a PG. The kid is talented and can really shoot the ball, just not sold on his ability to play the point. Kyle Singler was a good pick to bolster their bench, never hurts to have a guy with that kind of experience coming off the bench. Grade: B

Cleveland- I can live with the selection of Kyrie Irving with the #1 overall pick, as the PG is one of the most important positions on the floor. I like Tristian Thompson, but I truly believe he was a BIG reach at that point in the draft. I don’t believe you should draft a guy that can’t start that high in the draft. I just can’t see him supplanting J.J. Hickson at the 4. Grade: B
