2017 NBA Draft Results




Round 2




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


  1. Charlotte Hornets: Frank Jackson, PG, Duke B Grade

    New Orleans gets a point guard that can defend well. Frank Jackson is the top point guard on the board here and he can average up to 11 points per game like Brandon Knight with the right coaching.


  2. Phoenix Suns: Davon Reed, SG, Miami FL F Grade

    The Suns are already stacked at guard. That's why this pick gets an F grade.



  3. Orlando Magic: Wesley Iwundu, SF, Kansas State F Grade

    The Magic took a small forward in the first round. There is no reason for the Magic to double dip here since Iwundu isn't even one of my top power forwards here.


  4. Sacramento Kings: Frank Mason, PG, Kansas B Grade

    Frank Mason averaged 20.9 points per game and provided outstanding leadership during his NCAA career at Kansas. Like De'Aaron Fox he's undersized. He compliments Fox well though.


    In 2011, Sacramento took Jimmer Fredette at 11 and Isaiah Thomas who now plays for the Boston Celtics at 60. Could we see another situation like that where Mason goes on to have the better career than Fox once he leaves the Kings.



  5. Memphis Grizzlies: Ivan Rabb, PF, California A+ Grade

    Zach Randolph is getting older. Ivan Rabb has the tools to be an ideal successor to Randolph.


    Ivan Rabb averaged 14 points per game, 10.5 rebounds per game, 1.5 assists per game. His field goal percentage, three point percentage, and free throw percentage are down from last year. Rabb is still a top 20 talent and can develop into a David Lee type of player. Memphis is getting a huge steal here.


  6. Philadelphia 76ers: Jonah Bolden, PF, FMP Beograd F Grade

    The 76ers reached here. Jonah Bolden is a project player so I'm giving the 76ers an F grade.



  7. Boston Celtics: Semi Ojeleye, SF, SMU A+ Grade

    The 6-7 235 lb Semi Ojeleye averaged 19 points per game, 6.9 rebounds per game, 1.5 assists per game, a .487 field goal percentage, a .424 three point percentage, and a .785 free throw percentage.


    Ojeleye has the short range accuracy, medium range accuracy, and long range accuracy that NBA teams covet on tape. He also has the versatility to play small forward or power forward. This is a player that wowed me on tape and someone who could easily sneak into the late first round after signing with an agent.


    Ojeleye has an excellent shooting chart. He doesn't just have an excellent shooting chart, he also plays defense well. That is why Ojeleye moves into the first round discussion. For Boston to obtain Semi Ojeleye in the second round is a huge steal for the Celtics.


  8. Golden State Warriors: Jordan Bell, PF, Oregon B Grade

    I'm not sure why Golden State traded up. Jordan Bell averaged 10.9 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game as a 6-9 225 lb power forward at Oregon.



  9. Philadelphia 76ers: Juwan Evans, PG, Oklahoma State A Grade

    The 6-1 185 lb Juwan Evans averaged 19.2 points per game as a sophomore after averaging 12.9 points per game. He got more points and assists and did a better job getting the offense involved at Oklahoma State. His three point percentage and free throw percentage dropped this season. I said the same thing with Jerian Grant coming out of Notre Dame two years ago which is the one drawback to taking Evans. Evans is a huge steal at 39, but with Fultz on the roster, Philadelphia may not use Evans to his potential which is why Philadelphia only gets an A grade even though you can argue this is A+ value.


  10. Charlotte Hornets: Dwayne Bacon, SF, Florida State A Grade

    Dwayne Bacon would have been a first round pick last year. He goes in the second round of a deeper NBA Draft Class.



  11. Atlanta Hawks: Tyler Dorsey, SG, Oregon B Grade

    Tyler Dorsey who had 14.6 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game, and 1.7 assists per game. Dorsey improved as a scorer during his sophomore season and would be a role player for the Hawks here since his defense needs some work.


  12. Los Angeles Lakers: Thomas Bryant, C, Indiana A+ Grade

    Thomas Bryant is a player that has late first round ability. He fell to the Lakers here even when Magic Johnson traded down plus he will be in a depth role behind Brook Lopez so I love this pick here by the Lakers.



  13. Houston Rockets: Isaiah Hartenstein, PF, Zalgiris A+ Grade

    I had a first round grade on Hartenstein. This pick is a steal here.



  14. New York Knicks: Damyean Dotson, SG, Houston B Grade

    Damyean Dotson is a solid shooting guard for the Knicks. I like this pick so I'll give it a B grade here.


  15. Memphis Grizzlies: Dillon Brooks, SF, Oregon A+ Grade

    The 6-7 225 lb Dillon Brooks was huge for Oregon the last two years. He didn't score as many points this year, but he can get you 16 points per game and he has the leadership you look for when the Playoffs arrive.



  16. Philadelphia 76ers: Sterling Brown, SG, SMU D Grade

    SMU had a second player projected to get drafted. This was still a huge reach though.


  17. Indiana Pacers: Ike Onigbogu, C, UCLA B Grade

    This is a solid pick for depth at this point in the second round. I can see how this would be a decent value pick.



  18. Los Angeles Clippers: Sindarius Thornwell, SG, South Carolina C Grade

    Los Angeles gets a shooting guard for depth. Sindarius Thornwell is decent value at this point.


  19. Denver Nuggets: Vlato Cancar, SF, Mega Leks F Grade

    Denver reached here. They get an F grade in the second round.


  20. Philadelphia 76ers: Mathias Lassort, PF, Nanterre C Grade

    Philadelphia got decent value with this pick. It's not a bad selection.



  21. Denver Nuggets: Monte Morris, PG, Iowa State A Grade

    This is a good value pick by Denver. This pick gets an A grade. Monte Morris plays smart and avoids turnovers.


  22. Indiana Pacers: Edmond Sumner, PG, Xavier A Grade

    Indiana gets a quality point guard for depth. I love the value Sumner provides here.



  23. Boston Celtics: Kadem Allen, SG, Arizona F Grade

    Arizona reached with this pick. This is a horrible selection by Boston.


  24. Phoenix Suns: Alec Peters, PF, Valparaiso A+ Grade

    I love this pick. The 6-9 225 lb Alec Peters averaged 23 points per game and 10.1 rebounds in 2016-2017.


  25. Utah Jazz: Nigel Williams-Goss, PG, Gonzaga A+ Grade

    Gonzaga point guard Nigel Williams-Goss is one of the best point guard at 6-5 195 lbs. Nigel Williams-Goss averaged 18.6 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, 4.7 assists per game, a .486 field goal percentage, a .368 three point percentage, and a .867 free throw percentage.



  26. Boston Celtics: Jabari Bird, SG, California F Grade

    Boston reached for Jabari Bird here. That's why this pick gets an F grade.


  27. Brooklyn Nets: Aleksandar Vezenkov, PF, F.C. Barcelona F Grade

    Aleksandar Vezenkov isn't even the best player on F.C. Barcelona. Brooklyn already took Jarrett Allen in the first round so this is another F grade.



  28. New York Knicks: Ognjen Jaramaz, PG, Mega Leks F Grade

    The Knicks drafted an International point guard at 8. This guy seems like a horrible pick with much better point guards on the board.


  29. San Antonio Spurs: Jarron Blossomgate, SF, Clemson A+ Grade

    I had Jarron Blossomgate going one pick earlier to the New York Knicks in my final NBA Mock Draft. Putting Blossomgate in a depth role where he can learn behind Kawhi Leonard and step in if he gets injured again is smart.


  30. Atlanta Hawks: Alpha Kaba, PF, Mega Leks C Grade

    It's like ESPN said "Alpha Kaba" is the Omega of this draft. That being said, Kaba is Mega Leks best prospect so the Hawks get a C grade for taking him at 60.
