2011 NBA Draft: Picks 25-30

Published on June 24, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

26. Dallas Mavericks SF Jordan Hamilton Grade B+

Wow the Mavericks just won the NBA Championship and Hamilton likely a top 15 picks falls to the Mavs.  Hamilton is a scorer and a great athlete.  The Mavs really need wing help with Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson, and Peja Stojakovic all free agents

27. New Jersey Nets or Boston Celtics PF JaJuan Johnson Grade B

This was the Nets pick but there are picking for the Celtics.  The Nets will receive the Celtics 25 pick Marshon Brooks.  So for the Nets I give a B grade for the pick of Brooks.  Brooks is a big time scorer who will help the Nets off the bench.  He also excels at creating his own shoot.  I also like Johnson to Boston; they need a lot of help up front.  Johnson can do it all shoot outside and mix it up near the rim.

28. Minnesota Timberwolves PG/SG Norris Cole Grade C

This was the Bulls pick but there was a trade, what the Timberwolves took another point guard. Don’t get me wrong Cole may be a great talent, but isn’t Ricky Rubio playing for the Timberwolves next season?

29. San Antonio Spurs PG Corey Joseph Grade C

This is a big surprise; I thought he wouldn’t go until the mid second round.  With the Spurs trading George Hill they now need a backup point guard.  I really thought the Spurs should have got some help in the frontcourt, but hey who am I to question the Spurs they always take under the radar players.

30. Chicago Bulls SF Jimmy Butler Marquette Grade B-

He is a very versatile player, he is a average player that does not excel at anything but doesn’t really have any real weaknesses.  He is a very hard working player who will fit the Bulls system.  I thought the Bulls should have drafted a shooting guard, but there aren’t many out there.
