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 2001. For the 2011-2002 edition, click here. For the 1989-1975 edition, click here.
No. 24 - Raul Lopez
No. 52 - Jarron Collins
Lopez missed the 2002-03 season due to knee surgery. The Grizzlies acquired Lopez in the biggest trade in NBA history, involving five teams, but Memphis cut him.
Collins stayed with the Jazz for eight years. After becoming a free agent, he spent some time with Portland, Phoenix and the Clippers.
No. 23 - DeShawn Stevenson
No. 50 - Kaniel Dickens
Stevenson became the youngest player to ever play for the Jazz after coming straight from high school and was most recently part of the 2011 title-winning Dallas Mavericks.
Dickens ended up playing the 2000-01 season for the Russian squad Ural Great and in 2008 spent time in the NBDL and also played for an Italian team.
No. 19 - Quincy Lewis
No. 24 - Andrei Kirilenko
No. 28 - Scott Padgett
No. 58 - Eddie Lucas
Lewis remained with the Jazz until 2002 and briefly played for the Timberwolves, Maccabi-Tel Aviv and Iurbentia Bilbao Basket.
Kirilenko came to the NBA in 2001 and was an NBA All-Star in 2004. He averaged 11.7 ppg in 2010-11.
Padgett became a stable part of the rotation, but was only with the Jazz for four years and is currently coaching at Manhattan College after serving as an assistant at Kentucky.
Lucas was the last pick of the draft and ended up playing for different clubs outside the country.
No. 29 - Nazr Mohammed
No. 57 - Torraye Braggs
The Jazz traded Mohammed's rights to Philadelphia for a future first round pick (Quincy Lewis). Mohammed ended up being a part of the 2005 title-winning Spurs. In 2011 the Thunder acquired him in a trade from Charlotte.
Braggs bounced around different teams in the NBA, CBA, ABA, NBDL and in 12 different countries.
No. 27 - Jacque Vaughn
No. 57 - Nate Erdmann
Vaughn stayed four seasons with the Jazz and won a title with the Spurs in 2007. He retired in 2009 and became an assistant with the Spurs in 2010.
Erdmann didn't play a regular-season game with Utah and is now with Poland's Atlas Stal.
No. 25 - Martin Muursepp
No. 54 - Shandon Anderson
The Jazz traded Muursepp to the Heat for the 23rd pick in the 2000 draft (DeShawn Stevenson). Muursepp was a silver medalist twice in Russian competition. He is currently an assistant with BC Kalev/Cramo.
Anderson won a title in 2006 with the Heat and played in the NBA for 10 years. He was a part of both Jazz squads to make the Finals.
No. 28 - Greg Ostertag
He may have driven fans and Karl Malone crazy but he played 11 NBA seasons, all but one with Utah.
He never averaged double digits in rebounds or points but he shot near 50 percent from the field and was entertaining off the court and was a good citizen for the Jazz.
No. 47 - Jamie Watson
Watson played for Utah until 1997 and took 3rd at the 1995 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. He also played for Al Riyadi in Lebanon.
No. 18 - Luther Wright
No. 45 - Bryon Russell
Wright played just one year and had some off-court issues stemming from bipolar disorder.
Russell had the dubious task of guarding Michael Jordan in the 1998 Finals suffering the apparent push-off that led to the winning basket. Jordan mentioned Russell in his Hall of Fame speech, about a challenge made during Jordan's first retirement.
No. 21 - Eric Murdock
No. 48 - Issac Austin
Murdock played nine seasons in the NBA and produced 5,118 points.
After a few dismal seasons with the Jazz, Austin played for a Turkish team, but ended up winning the NBA Most Improved Player Award in 1997 while with the Heat. Austin owned and coached the Utah Snowbears from 2004-05, but a feud with officials prompted him to forfeit the remainder of the year.
