7. Al Jefferson - 21.1

Selected 15th overall in 2004 by the Boston Celtics, Al Jefferson was traded to the Jazz in the summer of 2010 and paired up with a star talent at point guard in Deron Williams. In total he played three seasons in Utah.

Throughout his career and especially in his time with the Jazz, Jefferson's availability was a key factor in his success. He played 61 or more games in all three seasons he spent in Utah, including all 82 games during 2010-11. Play style-wise, he was an old school big man who loved to play in the post and beat defenders with his array of moves and soft touch down low.

Al's skill led him to averaging 18.5 points on just under 50% shooting from the floor in his three seasons with the team. He did not take home any major accolades such as All-Star or All-NBA as a Jazzman, but fans still remember him for his grittiness and tenacity while operating as Utah's solid foundation at center.

The 2014-15 season where Al left the Jazz and joined the Charlotte Bobcats was when he earned the only All-NBA honors of his career. There are not many players like Jefferson left in the league, which makes the memories of his game all the more fond for Jazz fans.
