2012 NBA Draft Grades, Nuggets Receive 'D' From CBS Sports' Matt Moore

The 2012 NBA Draft is complete, and the Denver Nuggets made some interesting selections by grabbing French shooting guard Evan Fournier with the No. 20 pick, small forward Quincy Miller at No. 38 and Turkish center Izzet Turkyilmaz with the 50th overall pick. How did NBA experts feel about Denver's draft class?

CBS Sports senior blogger Matt Moore (@HPBasketball) has dished out 2012 NBA Draft Grades for all 30 teams, and the Nuggets got slapped with a 'D' for picking up too many prospects that are redundant with established players on their roster:

Evan Fournier (20): It's a little odd, seeing the Nuggets traded for another versatile wing when they have Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Jordan Hamilton. Stockpiling assets is only valuable if you eventually do something with them.

Quincy Miller: All the athletic small forwards, Denver has them.

Izzet Turkylmaz: Seven feet tall. So he's got that going for him.

Overall Grade: D
