Chad Ford's 2008 NBA Draft grades

ESPN - Draft grades: Evaluating every team, from A+ to D - NBA

Sacramento Kings:  Grade: C-

Round 1: Jason Thompson (12)

Round 2: Sean Singletary (42), Patrick Ewing Jr. (43)

Analysis: A team should not be criticized just for doing the unexpected. But the Kings made a huge reach for Thompson at No. 12. He's going to be a solid rotation player at best. But he looks like he might be the Shelden Williams of this draft.

With solid players like Brandon Rush, Darrell Arthur and Mario Chalmers and upside guys like Anthony Randolph and Marreese Speights on the board, I think the Kings blew it.

Singletary could be a nice second-round pick. But I have a hard time believing Ewing has a spot in the league.
