PG Spot
 
The Jazz should keep an eye on these PGs in the draft.

Trey Burke

Ray McCallum

Lorenzo Brown

Isaiah Canaan

CJ McCollum

Are these pure pg's or combo guards? The way Burks is looking a combo guard might make a lot of sense. Could have a lot of diversity running the offense through Burks, Hayward or another guard. Would never have worked with Sloan but now it might make sense. They might want to look for more of a veteran if they get someone like Patty Mills as is rumored too.

They are pass-first guards.

Burke reminds me of CP3.

He sounds like their guy to me. A combo guard. Would allow Hayward and Burks to still have the ball in their hands as well. Looks like he is projected around where they will be picking and they will likely have GS' pick if they need to move up a bit too.

This guy could be a fallback choice. Some others might have more potential than these two but more question marks as to their fit.

Arthur (Arizona) Would the Jazz draft Trey Burke is he was available? Would they draft Cauley-Stein as a 3rd big? Chad Ford (1:23 PM) I have the Jazz taking Burke at No. 14 in our Lottery Mock Draft Machine. Not totally sure he'll be there, but if he is, seems like a good fit. PG is a priority for them. Michael Carter-Williams is a possibility for them if he slides. I hear they also like Myck Kabongo and Lorenzo Brown a bit. Ditto for Nate Wolters. But 14 might be a little high for all of those guys. ESPN.com

Jazz don't need a 3rd big. They need a small guard. Their other picks should be traded or used to stash guys overseas which seems like a possibility with a former Spur as GM. They don't need to get younger other than a small guard.

I could say them taking guys with a possible trade in mind for someone like Bledsoe when he becomes available after Chris Paul re-signs.

Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart projected to be a top-five pick in the NBA draft will return to school for his sophomore year, sources told Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday night. Smart will make his decision public on Wednesday in a news conference on campus. The decision shocked many in the NBA because no other young prospect slotted for the lottery had chosen to bypass the draft.

Yahoo! Sports

Adrian Wojnarowski: Overwhelming initial response of NBA executives on Marcus Smart's decision to bypass top 5 status in draft to stay in school: Shock.

Twitter @WojYahooNBA

Smart had been weighing a decision a decision he said Monday was getting "harder and harder every day" of whether to return to the Cowboys for another year or enter the NBA Draft, with projections placing him near or at the top of the first round.

The pool just got a bit smaller.

Based on what I've read he sounds like their guy to me too. Says he might be moving up towards the top of the draft though so unless they get lucky in the lottery or can move up they might not get him. They need someone multi-skilled to play with G and Burks. Handle the ball, score off the dribble, shoot off the ball, match-up defensively.

Sounds like they'll need to move up to the 5-7 range to guarantee they get him.

Maybe. At least 15 teams interviewing him. Didn't say if the Jazz were. We will know soon if the get really lucky in the lottery.

Re: PG Spot
 
Looks like Orlando should be looking to draft a pg which sounds likely to be Burke that high up. Might be able to trade down and still get him or someone else if he's not their guy. NO, Charlotte, Kings, Detroit, Minnesota, OKC, and Dallas could be looking at pg/combo guards too I'd think. Dallas might be trading their pick though.

He sounds like a good fit if they can't get McCOllom somehow.

Sounds like Boston made a promise to draft Schroeder at #16 if he's available.

I saw that. Jazz will have to take him with their first pick if they want him.

One unconfirmed rumor that's surfaced is the Kings offering point guard Isaiah Thomas to the Cavs for the No. 19 pick

If that doesn't happen he might be worth the Jazz's 2nd pick.

Sounds like the Kings have got a target on someone who's going to be picked around that area. If the Cavs pass and he's still available when the Jazz pick, you'd think they'd make that offer to the Jazz.

Suppose it depends on who the Jazz pick at #14 though.
