The 2010 NBA draft redone: Where do Favors, Hayward land?
Ravell Call, Deseret News
Now that the Utah Jazz have matched the contract for Gordon Hayward and he is back in the fold for the next four years, it's the perfect time to have a look back at the draft that brought him to the Jazz. The favorite topic of conversation when it comes to the 2010 draft for Jazz fans is how they missed on Paul George to take Hayward. While that is certainly true, it doesn't tell the whole story. The '10 draft is full of players who are still looking to reach their immense potential. To this point, only two players have been All-Stars (Paul George and John Wall), but there are plenty of solid contributors. The draft was 60 picks over two rounds with each round consisting of 30 picks. Of the 60 players selected, 49 have played in the NBA so far, according to Basketball-Reference.com. Of the 49 players to appear in an NBA game, Derrick Caracter ( second round, 58th overall) was the player with the lowest pick in the draft to play in the league.
