The NBA Draft Lottery finalized the draft order for NBA teams ahead of the upcoming draft. With the Utah Jazz now locked in the ninth pick, barring any sort of trade, the team will be selecting in the lottery to add yet another young piece to an already competitive roster.
As the draft approaches quickly, there’s no better time than the present to start looking at potential additions for the Jazz.

While there’s no guarantee Anthony Black will fall to the Jazz in the first round, it would be a pleasant surprise if he did. The 6-foot-7 combo guard would most definitely be taken into consideration if he does fall to the Jazz in the lottery.
The Arkansas product played just one season at the collegiate level, but in his freshman year, he showed nothing but promise. Black started all 36 games for the Razorbacks, averaging 12.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.9 assists while shooting 45.3% from the floor and 30.1% from three-point range. Not only does the young prospect show promising play on offense, but the 19-year-old is a tenacious defender as well. Averaging 2.1 steals per game, Black would be a scary addition to an already feisty Jazz defense.
