    used the latter first round pick to move up...combined with a player...to probably get zeller...at our 14th pick...get dennis schroeder...the problem now is...who'll start between Kanter Favors and Zeller...if Zeller became the player he's talked out to be...

    It is verifiable waste to move up in draft for a point guard.

    OR use any top first round pick for point guard unless they are 6'9 and named magic.

    What did deron actually do for them himself? What any lottery picked point guard done in the last decade?

    The bottom line fact is they used one lottery pick to trade for another? and jury is still out on another "safe" player.

    The Jazz have traded to move up in the draft more than once. They last did it to get Daron Williams and that worked out great for a number of years. In fact it still is, considering we picked up Kanter in the Daron trade. He'll be a Jazz mainstay for years to come.

    It's now a feasible opportunity to trade both of the Jazz current first round picks to get one good enough to pick up Zeller. Considering his credentials, it would seem to be a smart move. He has great potential, especially as possible replacement for free-agent Al Jefferson.

    It's almost always is a better move to get one great player instead of two pretty good players. After the draft, there will be amble opportunity in the free-agent market to finish filling in the roster to take care of the team's remaining needs.

    You know someone like Cody Zeller will become star in league, and jazz will miss out on him by a pick or two, because they refuse to try move up a pick or two,

    they refuse to take risks,

    continuing there safe mediocre team and over valuing and holding on to players that will take them nowhere.

    And we will probably get stories about gold found in second round (safe players that took them nowhere), while ignoring all the years they missed out on true golden nuggets like manu genobili among many others.

    But then again, the jazz would have to change offense to take advantage of skills players like manu have. (they may be better off elsewhere, they didn't even change it for horny!)
