Deseret News 2013 mock NBA draft

Published: Wednesday, June 26 2013 6:41 p.m. MDT

With the 2013 NBA draft drawing closer, the draft day intrigue will begin with the first pick.

There is still no consensus number one, and 2013 could be one of the most unpredictable drafts in recent memory.

The Jazz hold picks No. 14, 21 and 46, and 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.

Here is the first round of the Deseret News 2013 mock NBA draft.

Jazz having their choice between Larkin and Schroeder at #14, AND Plumlee falling to #21. Seems about as close to a dream scenario as I've ever seen.

It would be huge mistake for the jazz to over look a good big man and take a guard first.

Top picks should always be reserved for good big men or outstanding 2's and 3's, then you can look at 1s

No, if xeller or olynyk are available they will be taken by the jazz,

There are not really any good 2s or 3s this year at where the jazz are picking.

There are very good point guards options at 21, and Schroeder may still be available, we can hope.

If they do make a huge mistake and take a point guard at 14 it should be CJ McCollum, if he falls that far and they take one, but only because he can shoot and score.

The jazz really need a a good team offense not a point guard run and centered offense. You should never that much reliance on the point guard they only need to bring the ball up and get the offense started. basketball should be a team game if you want to succeed.

In the Jazz offense point guards handle and dribble the ball entirely too much.

Saint George, UT

Taking Burke, McCollum or MCW at #14 would be far from a mistake.
