If there’s a player in this year’s class that I’d really like to see end up in Utah, it’s SMU forward Semi Ojeleye. Here we have him going to the Portland Trail Blazers at No. 26, but I think he’d be a great pick-up for a number of teams. I profiled Ojeleye when he worked out for the Jazz earlier this month; you can check that out for an in-depth look at his NBA journey.
What you really need to know about the 22-year-old is that he’s built like a tank (240-plus pounds and just five percent body fat), is a really good in the catch-and-shoot and has a rough-and-tumble game that hearkens back to former Jazzmen DeMarre Carroll and Trevor Booker.
