Per ESPN Insider, seems like they actually know Thornton, and how ready he is to make an impact, unlike people here. Along with knowing how good of a PG Jordan could be.Los Angeles Clippers Grade: A-
Round 1: Al Thornton (14)
Round 2: Jared Jordan (45)
Analysis: The Clippers went bargain hunting and picked up two players who slipped further than they should have.
Thornton slipped because of his age (24) and questions about his wrist -- but he has an NBA-ready game. His arrival makes it appear that Corey Maggette is back on the trading block.
Jordan is one of the best pure point guards in this draft class. He's not big or athletic, but he has a sixth sense for seeing the floor the same way that injured Clippers point guard Shaun Livingston does.
