Potential Utah Jazz draft selection: Alperen Sengun

Questions surround his defense. Also, Alperen Sengun is only 18 years old.

That said, the above film and following ESPN.com scouting report suggest the 6-foot-9, 245-pounder could quickly develop into the type of interior offensive force that Utah lacks:

"“Arguably the most productive 18-year-old in high-level European basketball history…Dominant interior scorer with preternatural instincts crashing the glass, creating for teammates, getting in passing lanes, and protecting the rim. Nimble, flexible, and quick off his feet with outstanding footwork, hands, and touch.”"

As for when Sengun will come off the board on draft night, that’s still anyone’s guess.

Many mock drafts peg the 2020-21 Turkish Super League MVP as a late lottery pick. Others see him as a late first-rounder.

Should Sengun somehow slip to No. 30, the Jazz could manage an epic steal.
