Rivals.com has partnered with NBA Draft expert Jonathan Givony and his staff at DraftExpress.com to analyze the results of Thursday's draft. Givony hands out grades for each team, and we have grouped them by division. Below, please find the grades for the Northwest Division.
This report card was based off three things:
I: How well the team satisfied its needs or filled gaps on the roster with the hand they were dealt. II: How much value teams received from the picks they had. III: Subjective opinions on the player(s) they landed and how well they fit with the team's style of play, the direction they are headed and what we know about the organization.
Draft Grades Methodology:
A: The team probably could not have done any better considering the situation. B: The team did well in filling their needs, getting fair value from their pick and getting a prospect that fits their system and the direction the franchise is heading. C: The team had an average draft, not great - but also did not embarrass their fans. D: The team should have done a better job with the picks they made. F: The team did a terrible job and their fans have every reason to be angry.
