2017 NBA Draft Results




Round 1 Picks 16-30




Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: June 22, 2017.


  1. Minnesota Timberwolves: Justin Patton, C, Creighton D Grade

    The 7-0 226 lb center is the best pure center in the 2017 NBA Draft. He's not a power forward/center like the other big men and is a pure center. That's why Minnesota got a D grade here.


  2. Milwaukee Bucks: D.J. Wilson, PF, Michigan F Grade

    I had a second round grade on D.J. Wilson. This pick gets an F grade.



  3. Indiana Pacers: T.J. Leaf, PF, UCLA B Grade

    The 6-10 225 lb T.J. Leaf averages 16.3 points per game, 8.2 rebounds per game, 2.4 assists per game, a .617 field goal percentage, a .466 three point percentage, and a .679 free throw percentage. Leaf can play the 3 at small forward or the 4 at power forward. Leaf may have the third best shooting chart in the 2017 NBA Draft, but he's also very suspect defensively. Indiana has good depth at forward so I'll give this a B grade.


  4. Atlanta Hawks: John Collins, PF, Wake Forest A Grade

    John Collins averaged a ridiculous 19.2 points per game, 9.8 rebounds per game, and 0.5 assists per game. John Collins is an ideal pick for the Atlanta Hawks here plus players out of Wake Forest do well in the NBA. See Tim Duncan and Chris Paul.


  5. Sacramento Kings: Harry Giles, PF, Duke A Grade

    Harry Giles was a top 5 prospect back at the beginning of the year. The Kings can get him for depth here considering how much value he provides.



  6. Oklahoma City Thunder: Terrance Ferguson, SG, Adelaide C Grade

    Oklahoma City doesn't need a shooting guard. This is about the right value though so I'll give this a C grade.


  7. Brooklyn Nets: Jarrett Allen, PF, Texas A Grade

    The 6-11 235 lb Jarrett Allen is versatile enough to play power forward or center. Allen averaged 13.8 points per game, 8.4 rebounds per game, 0.8 assists per game, a .566 field goal percentage, and a .564 free throw percentage.



  8. Toronto Raptors: OG Anunoby, SF, Indiana D Grade

    This pick was a reach. Anunoby has injury issues.


  9. Denver Nuggets: Tyler Lydon, SF, Syracuse B Grade

    The 6-10 205 lb Lydon is versatile enough to play small forward or power forward. Lydon needs to do a better job avoiding turnovers though.


  10. Philadelphia 76ers: Anzejs Pasecniks, C, Gran Canaria F Grade

    The 76ers take a center for depth. I feel like this pick is a reach here. Philadelphia gave Orlando a 2020 first and 2020 second when they have two centers in Embiid and Okafor so this is an F grade.



  11. Portland Trail Blazers: Caleb Swanigan, PF, Purdue B Grade

    he 6-9 250 lb Caleb Swanigan is the pick here unless he withdraws from the 2017 NBA Draft as he compliments Josh Jackson well at power forward. Swanigan averaged 18.5 points per game and 12.5 rebounds per game.


  12. Los Angeles Lakers: Kyle Kuzma, PF, Utah C Grade

    I like Kuzma for depth as someone that can push Robert Nance Jr. for a roster spot. This is a good pick by the Lakers.



  13. Utah Jazz: Tony Bradley, C, North Carolina F Grade

    Utah gave up 30 and 42 to move up for a second round talent. This pick gets an F grade.


  14. San Antonio Spurs: Derrick White, SG, Colorado A+ Grade

    The 6-5 200 lb Derrick White averaged 18.3 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game, 4.4 assists per game, a .507 field goal percentage, a .399 three point percentage, and a .813 free throw percentage for Colorado. He's versatile enough to play point guard or shooting guard plus he defends well making him a great fit for the Spurs as a successor to either Tony Parker or Manu Ginobli. He may do well enough to sneak into the late first round and is a great fit for the Spurs here as we have the Spurs taking White to be a successor to Manu Ginobli.


  15. Los Angeles Lakers: Josh Hart, SG, Villanova A+ Grade

    The Lakers use this pick on a shooting guard to be used as a depth player behind Jordan Clarkson. They want to wait until 2018 for a SF, they got two power forwards that are first round picks, and they got Brook Lopez at center plus another international player that can come in and be his backup. The Lakers worked out Josh Hart and he makes total sense at 30 after trading down with the Jazz. Josh Hart averages 18.7 points per game and was a key piece if not the key piece in Villanova's Championship run.
