The Jazz only have one pick in this year's NBA draft, and it isn't till the middle of the second round. Predicting the 47th draft pick can be somewhat difficult. But Jazz beat-writer, Jody Genessy, found out that some players were mentioned frequently with the Jazz. Here is a look at what different draft experts are saying who the Jazz will pick.
Robbie Hummel is a 6'8" forward from Purdue.
ESPN's Chad Ford described Hummel as being "a Jazz player all the way. He is tough, has a terrific basketball IQ and can really shoot the basketball. The Jazz could use some help at the 3, and Hummel should be able to provide some immediate relief."
Hummel was one of the first prospects the Jazz worked out.
Kevin Jones is a 6'7" forward from West Virginia.
Multiple mock drafts have the Jazz picking up Jones.
Joe Kotoch of SheridanHoops.com called Jones "a sweet-shooting (power forward) that will give the Jazz a dimension they lack. Very productive and efficient."
Kim English is a 6'6" shooting guard from Missouri.
HoopsWorld.com has English pegged for the Jazz after he attended a Utah workout.
"English may lack elite athleticism, but he plays intense defense, makes the extra pass, and seems well-equipped to fill a Daequan Cook type role in the right situation given his prolific jump shooting."
Henry Sims is a 6'11" center from Georgetown.
A few early mock drafts have Sims going to the Jazz.
Draftexpress.com said that even though Sims is not exteremly athletic, "he made the most of his 7'4 wingspan and impressive frame, blocking a number of shots, pursuing the ball off the rim aggressively, and finishing around the basket."
Orlando Johnson is a 6'5" guard from U.C. Santa Barbara.
TheHoopsReport.com's latest mock draft has the Jazz picking up Johnson.
Johnson averaged almost 20 points a game for UCSB last year. He also shot 45 percent from the field.
