Utah Jazz: 'Calculated risk,' analyst says

From ESPN.com analyst Chad Ford: "I like this pick for the Jazz. He's got a lot more upside than people think. He's a pretty good athlete, very versatile and tough. The big question for Hayward is what will happen with his jump shot. He shot 44 percent from 3-point range as a freshman and 30 percent as a sophomore. If he shoots 44 percent as a pro, he could be a stud. 30 percent? Could be a bust. A calculated risk for the Jazz. This is the pick New York traded when acquiring Stephon Marbury from Phoenix in 2004."
