SALT LAKE CITY — The Jazz came out of the NBA draft lottery in unremarkable fashion. Long predicted to be at the bottom of the lottery slate, Utah's outlook is now certain for the upcoming draft as the Jazz hold picks No. 14, 21 and 46.
With just days left before the draft, the Jazz have tried to fit in as many potential draftees for workouts as possible. With parity reigning among this year's available players, Mike Sorensen writes that the Jazz's approach comes from a far more deliberate approach than many outsiders might think.
With at least eight players from last year's roster hitting free agency, it's unlikely that the draft will solve all the issues the team wants to address. Some of the more pressing concerns (outside shooting, point guard), however, could be effectively resolved if the Jazz nail down the right prospects.
