NBA Draft Grades: Boston Celtics Receive 'B' From CBS Sports

The 2011 NBA Draft report cards have been pouring in all day, and for the most part, the Boston Celtics have fared very well. Danny Ainge and the Celtics were assessed a 'B' for their picks, JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore.

Johnson was acquired in a draft day trade with the New Jersey Net. Johnson was picked No. 27 overall, then traded along with a 2014 second round pick to the Celtics in exchange for Marshon Brooks, who Boston drafted at No. 25.

Boston Celtics: JaJuan Johnson, E'Twaun Moore. Grade: B. Celtics needed a big, they got a big. They needed a guard. They got one. And they wound up taking guys with polish, both from Purdue, who were both underrated and are capable of being competent role players down the line. Yup, sounds like the Celtics of the last few years. (via CBS Sports)
