B+ Atlanta Hawks don’t plan to re-sign Mike Bibby and got a quality replacement in Wake Forest PG Jeff Teague. Sergiy Gladyr, a good athlete and good shooter, was a good gamble at No. 49. D Boston When you only have one pick and it’s No. 58, it’s hard to get a decent grade. Lester Hudson is a decent combo guard, but he could have gone undrafted. B+ Charlotte The Bobcats got a quality shooting guard in Gerald Henderson, who stays on Tobacco Road, and Derrick Brown was a great value at No. 40. Some analysts had Brown, a good athlete, going late in the first round. B- Chicago James Johnson could be the replacement for Tyrus Thomas if he’s traded. Johnson was a solid pick at No. 16. Taj Gibson is more of a defender, but it would have been better if the Bulls had taken DeJuan Blair. B+ Cleveland Considering how low they were picking, the Cavaliers did really well. Christian Eyenga (No. 30) is a good stash pick and Danny Green, a 3-point threat, was a good value at No. 46. B Dallas Rodrigue Beaubois (No. 25) will stay overseas for a year or two. Oddly enough, Nick Calathes (No. 45) who might play overseas as well, is the better player. Calathes could have gone late in the first round. A- Denver The Nuggets had only one pick and obtained that selection by sending a future Charlotte first-round pick to Minnesota to grab Ty Lawson at No. 18. Lawson is a good backup for Chauncey Billups and the PG of the future. A- Detroit The Pistons did very well. Austin Daye (No. 15) is one of the most underrated players in this class. DaJuan Summers was a great value at No. 35, and Jonas Jerebko (No. 39) is a great stash overseas selection. B Golden State Coach Don Nelson has denied rumors the Warriors will trade their only pick, Stephen Curry (No. 7), saying Curry could play right away. The former Davidson guard was regarded as one of the draft’s most polished players. A- Houston The Rockets literally bought their way into a good draft, spending millions for picks. Jermaine Taylor (No. 32) is a good athlete who can score. Sergio Lull (No. 34) has had some success in Europe. Some say Chase Budinger is lazy, but at No. 44 there’s nothing to lose. C Indiana The Pacers had a chance to add a good PG but bought into the "Tyler Hansbrough is more athletic than you think” talk that improved his stock. They should have taken a PG or Earl Clark. A L.A. Clippers They only had one pick but Blake Griffin is, by far, the best player in the draft. This was a slam dunk even the Clippers couldn’t mess up. F L.A. Lakers The Lakers are trying to save money to re-sign both Trevor Ariza and Lamar Odom. They sold the No. 29, which they could have used on any one of several players who fell. Odom probably still bolts. A- Memphis The Grizzlies did well. The jury is out on whether Hasheem Thabeet (No. 2) will evolve into a legit NBA center, but he was the best big man. DeMarre Carroll (No. 27) is a great energy guy, and Sam Young was a great value at No. 36. C+ Miami The Heat’s first pick was No. 42, so they didn’t have much to work with, but Patrick Beverley, from the Ukraine, is a terrific athlete. At No. 60, Robert Dozier was worth a flyer. B Milwaukee The Bucks are rebuilding after trading Richard Jefferson. Brandon Jennings (No. 10) is the key to their draft. If he blossoms into a star PG like some project, this grade jumps to an A. If not, Jennings and Jodie Meeks (No. 41) won’t help much. C- Minnesota The Timberwolves had ample picks to improve a ton but didn’t use them wisely. Ricky Rubio (No. 5) has threatened to stay in Spain. Jonny Flynn (No. 6) is a good pick but was taken too high. Wayne Ellington (No. 28) is OK but nothing special. Trading the No. 18 pick to Denver was a mistake. B New Jersey The Nets had only one pick but Terrence Williams (No. 11) has great size and athleticism and could wind up being one of the best players in this draft. C- New Orleans The Hornets could have taken DeJuan Blair or someone else to beef up the frontcourt but instead took Darren Collison at (No. 21) to backup Chris Paul. Collison is decent but not what New Orleans needed. B New York The Knicks got good value with both of their first-round picks, the second one acquired in a buyout from the Lakers. Jordan Hill (No. 8) is athletic and fits D’Antoni’s system, as does PG Toney Douglas (No. 29). B Oklahoma City James Harden (No. 3) fills one of the Thunder’s big needs and is a better athlete and all-around player than most realize. The draft shoots up to an A if B.J. Mullens (No. 24) develops, a C if he flops. N/A Orlando The Magic didn’t have any picks. A- Philadelphia The Sixers had only one pick and were fortunate Jrue Holiday fell to them at No. 17. Filling the PG slot was critical, and they landed a player many projected to go in the lottery. B Phoenix Earl Clark is a solid player who can play multiple positions. Taylor Griffin (No. 48) has a chance to make the roster. If they add Stephen Curry No. 6 by trading Stoudemire then this shoots up to an A. B- Portland The Trailblazers drafted for the future with Victor Claver No. 22 and took a flyer on Jeff Pendergraph (No. 31) and Dante Cunningham (No. 33). Their best pick might have been No. 55, where Patty Mills surprisingly fell. A- Sacramento The Kings had a solid draft. Tyreke Evans (No. 4) could end up being the best player in this class, including Blake Griffin. He has Dwyane Wade-like talent. Omri Casspi (No. 21) was coveted by many teams. Jon Brockman (No. 38) is an inside bruiser. A+ San Antonio The Spurs didn’t have a first-round pick but landed a lottery-caliber talent at No. 37 in DeJuan Blair. Jack McClinton (No. 51) also was rumored to be a possible last first-round pick. B Toronto The Raptors’ only pick, No. 9 DeMar DeRozan, could end up being one of the best players in the 2009 class. If he develops into an All-Star, the grade leaps up to an A. B Utah Eric Maynor at No. 20 was one of the most underappreciated players in this class, but it was surprising the Jazz took a backup PG when there’s a chance Carlos Boozer and Paul Millsap could both leave via free agency. N/AWashington The Wizards didn’t have a pick but would get an A- minus for using their No. 5 pick to land Mike Miller and Randy Foye in a trade with Minnesota.
