Austin was the 48th pick, taken in the second round of the 1991 draft.

Austin only spent two seasons with the Jazz and wasn’t very productive. The reason he makes this list, however, is for what he did after he left Utah.

Austin played six more seasons in the NBA and was a solid rebounder and scorer, with his best season coming in a year when he got traded. During 1997-98, Austin averaged 13.5 points and 7.1 rebounds while playing for the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Wow, Eaton was a beast. I forgot what a monster he was.

This article could have at least given an honorable mention to the 1979 draft pick (Paul Dawkins) who made the team while the #1 pick that year (Larry Knight) was waived and never saw the court. Dawkins was a 10th round pick and probably the only player ever taken in that round to ever make an NBA team. He had a productive rookie year on a poor Jazz team. Also there were other noteworthy low picks such as Greg Deane out of the Universty of Utah who made the team and contributed.
