Deseret News 2013 mock NBA draft

Phoenix - Tony Mitchell, North Texas Next List » 30 of 30 « Prev
Mitchell is an athletic combo forward who has progressively gotten better at jump shooting over the course of his very short collegiate career, but is turnover-prone when driving to the basket. He is good in transition, a decent defender and very active without the ball.

Mitchell was academically ineligible for what would have been his freshman season, so his college career was delayed. He did well as a freshman, but took a step back as a sophomore, despite being tabbed as the Sun Belt's preseason conference player of the year.

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.

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