Top 5 Most Intriguing Draft Prospects In Utah Jazz Workouts

6 of 6

1. Myles Turner, Texas Longhorns

After being one of the more ballyhooed high school recruits in recent memory, Myles Turner failed to take the throne atop the Texas Longhorns roster. Still, the nearly-seven-foot, 240-pound Turner impressed enough to capture Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors.

Turner averaged 10.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game in his season with Texas. His length, athleticism and touch (he shot 84 percent from the line) make him an incredible two-way prospect.

The hope is that, with time and development, he can become a player who finishes at the rim, can stretch the defense and also protect the hoop at the NBA level.

Needless to say, players of Turner’s size and athleticism with that combination of skills are a rare find at any level of basketball. That star potential make him my top upside pick to work out with the Utah Jazz this summer.
