Deseret News 2013 mock NBA draft

Cleveland - Nerlens Noel, Kentucky Next » 1 of 30 « Prev
At 6-10 with a 7-4 wingspan, Nerlens has exceptional size and athletic ability. He is quick and nimble and has an above-average vertical leap, allowing him to be an impact player on both sides of the floor.

He may have possibly been the consensus number one overall pick had he not had a season-ending knee surgery earlier this year.

Cleveland has not tipped its hand in regards to who will be selected first overall, so Nerlens is by no means a slam dunk as the top pick. There has been speculation that the Cavs could select Alex Len or possibly Ben McLemore.

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.

the truth
Holladay, UT

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.
