5. Utah Jazz – Noah Vonleh, Indiana

Pick made by Josh Haslam

Co-Editor for Utah Jazz’s FanSided Site, Purple & Blues

The Jazz are in an interesting spot. They would have loved to been slotted in one of the top four spots and drafted a guy that can make a huge contribution to their rebuild process. Staying put at five will net them a good player, but more than likely someone who will take some time to develop. With the hire of new head coach Quin Snyder, they are looking for a big guy who can stretch the floor. Vonleh does just that. He can step out and shoot, plus he is a great rim protector to go down next to Derrick Favors in the post. He will take some time to develop, but Snyder and the Jazz will probably look in this area.
