Two of those players made the cut as fantasy sleepers, and we begin with the more controversial choice. Rajon Rondo, New Orleans Pelicans The Pelicans took…

2017 NBA Draft Grades

The dust has finally settled, and the 2017 NBA Draft has come and gone. This year’s draft was one of the most loaded in recent memory and could be fruitful for a good chunk of the league.

Note: The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards did not have a selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. Atlanta Hawks: B- John Collins, Tyler Dorsey, Alpha Kaba The Hawks' selection of John Collins makes…
