Moore: Blazers Get A For 2012 NBA Draft

17
Matt Moore of CBSSports.com graded the Portland Trail Blazers an A for their 2012 NBA Draft. ---------------------------------- Damian Lillard (6): The best point guard available at the sixth spot, fills a big need and doesn't overlook a bigger one. The Blazers landed their franchise point guard, even if he's not in that elite class, and didn't have to go up or down. And they avoided Andre Drummond. Bonus! Meyers Leonard (11): Fits snug as a bug with LaMarcus Aldridge, and can get up and down the floor. A great fit with Lillard and fills in their roster. Will Barton (40): Why not pick up the firebug and see if it works out? The Blazers have some depth at a position of need quickly. Overall grade: A ---------------------------------- ed: text edited, bumped to front page
