Grading Sacramento Kings' Roster After James Johnson and Aaron Brooks Signings

UPDATE: The Kings have additionally acquired James Johnson from the Raptors and Aaron Brooks in free agency. These acquisitions should fill some much-needed gaps at PG and SF -- grades for newest players are added to the slideshow.

"The Kings got Robinson. The Kings got Robinson."  Almost two weeks after the draft, I still have to say it under my breath to believe it.

The astonishment of this year's No. 5 pick hasn't blown over me.  In the breaking news room here at Bleacher Report, I was forced to keep my cool and stay quiet -- two things I'm terrible at anyway.  The Cavs took Waiters, and oh man I was juiced.  When you add the excitement of Thomas Robinson to an inability to stay calm, it's a miracle I didn't cause the site to explode. 

Now that Sacramento has officially signed him, and they're near a deal with Jason Thompson, we can examine what the team looks like.

The truth is, the landscape of the Kings looks deceptively great, much like the actual landscape of Sacramento: open space and more trees than you could ask for...and yet, it's so hot that it's often unbearable.  

Hopefully, T-Rob provides some shade for ailing Kings fans. It's looking like Geoff Petrie has intelligently decided to take a vacation this summer instead of sitting inside all day and rebuilding his team from the dirt up (a la Daryl Morey). 

Let's dive into mid-free-agency grades for the Sacramento Kings roster. Grades are based on projected support each player can provide for the team, not past performance (still reeling from that one, Sabean).
