SALT LAKE CITY The day after the Utah Jazz's season ended this past April, general manager Dennis Lindsey mentioned multiple times that the organization was willing to do something "bold" to build a championship-contending team for the future.
What the Jazz did on Thursday night in the NBA Draft could be considered in that bold category.
First, the Jazz acquired Michigan point guard Trey Burke in a trade with Minnesota. In exchange for the guy considered the best playmaker in the draft, the Jazz sent their 14th and 21st picks to the Timberwolves.
Utah then obtained French center Rudy Gobert, a 7-foot-1 big who has a 7-foot-9 wingspan, for their second-round pick and cash to Denver, according to the Denver Post.
