Players selected No. 14 in the NBA Draft during the lottery era

Published: Thursday, June 20 2013 7:23 p.m. MDT

Next Thursday, the Utah Jazz will have the 14th overall selection during the 2013 NBA draft.

The Jazz are no strangers to the 14th pick, having held it twice in the lottery era. The Jazz chose Kris Humphries in 2004 and Ronnie Brewer in 2006.

While neither of those picks panned out for the Jazz, the 14th overall pick has produced a mixed bag of All-Stars, role players and bench warmers in the lottery era.

In this year's draft where there is no consensus number one pick, will the Jazz strike out again, or will they strike gold?

Here is a list of players selected 14th overall since the draft lottery began in 1985.
  • Oldest first
  • Newest first
  • Most recommended
Colorado Springs, CO

So what is being said is package our first two picks and move into the top 10 or we are hosed!

North Ogden, UT

The Jazz need to take the best players available even if we don't get a PG at all. Don't move up in the draft! If anything move down.


This may be the most discouraging list I have every read...

#1 Champ
Salt Lake City, UT


So.... you're telling us not to get our hopes up. Got it.

#1 Champ

Lindon, UT

It's about time the 14th pick became an eventual all star, aka Karl Malone. Hopefully the Jazz will draft a great one. Good luck on #21 and # 46, also.
