(SportsNetwork.com) - This draft didn't light my world on fire.

Adams is a good scorer, but a borderline-terrible athlete. Granted, if you put the ball in the bucket, you don't need to be a triathlete, but Adams will have trouble keeping up with two guards in this league.

Stokes may be a keeper though.

He is a throwback power forward in the sense that he can score with his back to the basket as well as face up. Stokes is a great rebounder and has a surprising knack for passing. He's an adequate defender and needs to work on his shot.

The biggest move in the offseason was Zach Randolph's reported two-year extension. Memphis still has an open window. They are one of the three best defensive teams in the league and will continue as such with Marc Gasol, Tony Allen and Mike Conley in the fold.

Grade: B-
