Default Jazz draft situation

With the No. 5 pick of Thursday’s NBA Draft, the Utah Jazz would love to add an All-Star or future Hall-Of-Fame prospect in the mode of the above names. History shows those are four of the best No. 5 picks in the past 30 years. Every team in this slot looks for that type of home run.

Jonathan Bender. Jon Koncak. Nikoloz Tskitishvili. Shelden Williams. You want busts in the fifth spot? Those are the kind of guys the Jazz would like to avoid. Those four came into the league with great fanfare. All of them flopped. Miserably.

History shows the No. 5 spot is one of the great polarizing positions of the NBA Draft, the ultimate boom-or-bust pick. There is very little middle ground, through 30 years of data. In most cases, either the pick becomes one of the better players in the NBA, or a disappointment the team that selected him has to explain to its fans.
