With the Utah Jazz selecting at No. 24 and 30 in the 2017 NBA Draft, the team will look to improve their roster depth by focusing on shooting, rebounding and defense.
With the NBA Finals coming to a close, die-hard basketball fans need something to turn their attention to. Lucky for you, the 2017 NBA Draft is just around the corner!
In case you were completely enveloped by this year’s extremely interesting and competitive playoffs (insert sarcastic voice), this will be your quick refresher on possible draft targets for the Utah Jazz.
Utah is in an interesting position. They made it to the second round of the playoffs, and heading into last season, CBS Sports ranked them as having the deepest bench in the league. So the players they are selecting are not likely going to be getting much playing time.
That being said, there are still gaps in the current Jazz roster that could be addressed via this upcoming draft – three-point shooting off the bench, and another big who can rebound and protect the rim.
With those being our primary areas of focus, let’s look at a few players who could be available with the No. 24 and 30 picks and can help to fill those rolls.
