Quantcast

Utah Jazz to host Brandon Knight for work out Thursday

SALT LAKE CITY — It's unlikely to attract the attention of today's Jimmermania session, but the Utah Jazz will host Brandon Knight for a private workout on Thursday.

And according to some mock drafts, Jazz brass will be getting an up-close-and-personal look at their new point guard when the Kentucky freshman comes to town for a solo session.

Both ESPN.com hoops expert Chad Ford and DraftExpress.com have the Jazz snatching the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder with the No. 3 overall pick in their projections for the June 23 draft.

If that pans out, it would seem improbable that the Jazz would use their 12th pick to select either BYU's Jimmer Fredette or Connecticut's Kemba Walker if they fall that far down.

Fredette and Walker worked out for Utah brass on Wednesday in what was deemed to be an intensely competitive showing by both point guards.

As with the rest of their workouts, Thursday's session will not be open to the public.
