SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz brought in six more players to work out Wednesday morning, including three guards and three forwards.
With no point guards currently under contract, the point guards are getting the most attention, at least by the media.
Two players that are projected as late first-round or early second-round choices in this month's NBA Draft were among the half dozen who received a good look in the two-hour-plus session at the Zion's Bank Basketball Center — Miami's Shane Larkin, son of baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, and Lorenzo Brown, a 6-foot-5 guard from North Carolina State who led the ACC in assists last year.
Others at the workout included Reggie Bullock, a 6-7 forward from North Carolina; Amath M'Baye, a 6-9 forward from Oklahoma; Tony Mitchell, a 6-8 forward from North Texas; and Malik Story, a 6-5 guard from Nevada.
Larkin opened some eyes at the NBA combine with a vertical leap of 44 inches, the second best ever at the combine.
His height of 5-11 may hurt his NBA prospects, but Utah Jazz head scout Walt Perrin downplayed it.
"Does it matter? There's a couple of other players in the league (that size) still playing. If a guy can play, it doesn't matter what his size is," Perrin said.
