We're in the dog days of summer, and that means no NBA news. And this year there's even less than usual due to the labor dispute and lockout. So while we can't really tell you about the future of your Utah Jazz, we can share some facts about the team's past. Here's the second part of our look back at Jazz draftees, starting with 1989. For the previous editions, click here and here. Also, since the NBA Draft included many more rounds during this time period, we've only included the most notable names here.

Danny Shayes played for 19 years in the NBA???? I thought there was a mistake, but I looked it up and it's correct, if not impossible to believe..


I hate looking at such lists: Just look at the list of players the Jazz whiffed on between 1986 and 91 and it makes you wonder what might have been:

Vlade Divac, Rod Strickland, Mark Jackson, Cliff Robinson, Arvydas Sabonis, Dennis Rodman, Mark Price, Hornacek (First time), Kevin Duckworth, Anthony Mason, Antonio Davis.
and Sam Cassel in 1993.

I'm scratching my head trying to remember Jeff Moe on the Jazz. Sure looks like Tom Chambers in the picture.
