Grade: N/A (no picks)
Players Added: JR Giddens, Bill Walker, Semih Erden
Analysis: Giddens has 1st-round talent, but his behavior hasn't been the best. With the veteran core, he can be pulled in. The same goes for Bill Walker, who is an amazing value. Erden is a solid stash pick, but will not be able to contribute immediately.
Players Added: DJ Augustin, Alexis Ajinca, Kyle Weaver
Analysis: I may be wrong on this, but Charlotte poo-pooed this badly. Augustin is too similar to Felton and Ajinca is not an immediate contributor, which is what Charlotte needs. Weaver's skills contrast that of the existing point guards, and that's an added value.
Players Added: Derrick Rose, Omer Asik
Analysis: The first pick was a no-brainer though I still prefer Michael Beasley. Asik is a good stash pick.
Players Added: JJ Hickson, Darnell Jackson
Analysis: Hickson isn't as bad a pick as everyone is making it out to be. He's a scoring 4 who can be reigned in. Jackson is an energy guy who's a disciplined winner, and one of my favorite players in this year's draft.
Player Added: Shan Foster
Analysis: I'm not dogging the pick. Foster will be a solid pro in the right situation. Dallas needed a physical big.
Player Added: Sonny Weems
Analysis: Weems is a good player who may be the heir apparent to JR Smith as the first guy off the bench. I just thought that the Nuggets would have pushed hard for Mario Chalmers.
Players Added: Walter Sharpe, Trent Plaisted, Deron Washington
Analysis: I thought the Pistons could've added a very good swingman, or swung a deal for a very good one in the first round. Sharpe may be another in the long line of Piston power forwards with a mean streak.
Players Added: Anthony Randolph, Richard Hendrix
Analysis: Randolph can compete for minutes, but the Warriors needed more bodies as a result of this draft. Can Hendrix play in an up-tempo offense?
Players Added: Donte' Greene, Joey Dorsey, Maarty Leunen
Analysis: The Rockets added some fine pieces, but I really cannot see the value-add. Dorsey adds some muscle to a finesse frontline.
Players Added: Brandon Rush, Roy Hibbert, TJ Ford, Jarrett Jack, Rasho Nesterovic, Josh McRoberts, Maceo Baston
Player Lost: Jermaine O'Neal, Ike Diogu
Analysis: The Pacers earned some value for Jermaine O'Neal and the $44M owed to him over the next two years. Rush is a great piece, though I'm not sure where he fits in. Hibbert is a low-risk, low-reward pick. At the end of the day, many don't know the Pacers' direction.
Players Added: Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan, Mike Taylor
Analysis: Amazing value for both picks. Gordon will compete for ROY honors and Jordan should've been a first-round pick.
Players Added: Joe Crawford
Analysis: Being that the 1st rounder played a role in the Pau Gasol thievery, the Lakers had a good draft. Crawford is a hard-nosed player who can make the team.
Players Added: OJ Mayo, Darrell Arthur, Antoine Walker, Marko Jaric, Greg Buckner
Players Lost: Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal, Jason Collins
Analysis: OJ Mayo is a franchise player and Arthur adds muscle at the 4, which is a huge need. Though they gave up some bad contracts, they acquired some.
Players Added: Michael Beasley, Mario Chalmers
Analysis: Beasley and Chalmers were need-based value picks. Chalmers can fight for the starting PG position and Beasley can be a 18 and 10 guy immediately.
Players Added: Richard Jefferson, Joe Alexander, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
Players Lost: Yi Jianlian, Bobby Simmons
Analysis: Jefferson is a vast upgrade at the small forward position and Alexander is capable of being the full-time starter by Year 3. Mbah a Moute is a Skiles type of player.
Players Added: Kevin Love, Mike Miller, Nikola Pekovic, Brian Cardinal, Jason Collins
Players Lost: Antoine Walker, Marko Jaric, Greg Buckner
Analysis: When the Wolves drafted Mayo, I thought it was a good pick, because Mayo added a much-needed playmaker and a lock-down defender. While Love is a good fit and Miller is a very nice piece, neither are playmakers. Pekovic could be a solid contributor in 3-4 years.
Players Added: Brook Lopez, Ryan Anderson, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Yi Jianlian, Bobby Simmons
Player Lost: Richard Jefferson
Analysis: Losing Jefferson is big, but the Nets are not going to compete for a championship any time in the next two years. They help marketing with the addition of Yi and slam dunked each one of their picks, though Anderson was a bit of a reach. By 2010, the Nets may be a real competitor in the East.
Players Added: Danilo Gallinari
Analysis: Did the Knicks really need to pick up another small forward? Gallinari will need to win over Knicks fans.
Players Added: Courtney Lee
Analysis: Lee addresses a major need at the SG position and is a complete player.
Players Added: Marreese Speights
Analysis: Speights can be an upgrade at the 4 if he has the desire. His basketball IQ will need to increase in order to earn minutes.
Players Added: Robin Lopez, Goran Dragic
Analysis: The Lopez pick was an awesome one. Being groomed by The Diesel (hopefully in basketball and not rapping) may help his weak offensive game. Dragic isn't ready for the NBA yet. He's a good playmaker.
Players Added: Jerryd Bayless, Nicolas Batum, Ike Diogu
Players Lost: Jarrett Jack, Josh McRoberts
Analysis: By the end of the night, the Blazers addressed two major needs (PG, SG/SF) while consolidating picks.
Players Added: Jason Thompson, Sean Singletary, Patrick Ewing Jr.
Analysis: Geoff Petrie went in the direction of four-year players. All three players are capable of making this team. Thompson was a reach, but he addressed a big need in toughness and frontcourt scoring. Singletary is a true point. Ewing Jr. adds a great defender.
Players Added: George Hill, Malik Hairston, James Gist
Analysis: I love how well the Spurs drafted for need. If only the Spurs could have traded out of the 1st round to select Hill.
Players Added: Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, DJ White, DeVon Hardin, Sasha Kaun
Analysis: Picks 2 through 5 were excellent, though Ibaka should've been selected with the #32 pick (instead of the trade). Selecting Westbrook with the #4 pick was a reach of sorts. The next step is trading away the superfluous parts.
Players Added: Jermaine O'Neal, Nathan Jawai
Players Lost: TJ Ford, Rasho Nesterovic, Maceo Baston, Roy Hibbert
Analysis: O'Neal is a great piece ... when healthy, which is about half the time. Jawai was a good value pick. Getting value for Ford was key.
Players Added: Kosta Koufos, Ante Tomic, Tadija Dragicevic
Analysis: The Jazz are preparing for the imminent departure of free agents next summer.
Players Added: JaVale McGee
Analysis: McGee was not a good pick when Darrell Arthur was on the board. Walker was a great pick ... and then the Wiz kids sold him to Boston.
