NBA?draft:?First-round breakdown

1. Wizards: John Wall (Fr. PG, Kentucky)

The Wiz hope this electric PG can pair with Gilbert Arenas to space the floor and create opportunities for the rest of the team. Grade: A


2. Sixers: Evan Turner (Jr. SG, Ohio State)

A Turner-Jrue Holiday backcourt tandem could make the Sixers relevant again. However, Turner’s arrival may lead to departure of leading scorer Andre Iguodala. A-


3. Nets: Derrick Favors (Fr. PF, Georgia Tech)

With all the buzz about a Russian billionaire as the new owner, a future move to Brooklyn and the possible arrival of King James, Favors flew somewhat under the radar. Even without LeBron, Favors has the talent to be a star but still needs time to develop. B+


4. Timberwolves: Wesley Johnson (Jr. SF, Syracuse)

A guy who can put up a ton of points, Johnson adds an outside threat to ease the workload on Al Jefferson. But can he still be the rebounding force in the NBA? B


5. Kings: DeMarcus Cousins (Fr. PF, Kentucky)

John Calipari even questioned the big man’s passion. He’s worth the headache, even in a young locker room. B+
