The Utah Jazz only have one pick in this year's NBA Draft. Lucky number 47. Based on recent history, it is hard to say what they'll get with the 47th pick. It's not a new position for the Jazz. They have drafted 47th twice in the last decade, and have picked very talented players both times - and both are highlighted in this list. Drafting in the middle of the second round is always a gamble. A lot of players drafted at 47 have ended up playing in Europe or the D-League. Some have only ever played a couple of minutes in the NBA and others have played for NBA championships. One even has played for a pinball championship. Take a look at some of the best and worst players drafted at the 47th pick.
