The Utah Jazz are hoping to get a great pick in the upcoming 2024 NBA Draft, landing themselves a star player that they can build around and help expedite the rebuild that they've spent the last two seasons focusing on. The Jazz need a big-time name to fall to them because fans and players like are becoming restless.

The franchise is squandering Lauri Markkanen and Collin Sexton, while also over-burdening Keyonte George and Walker Kessler as they develop. The Jazz need to have better players, and a deeper roster to not only support the stars at the top but the guys closer to their level of experience so that everyone can mature and develop at the same time. Thankfully, the Jazz have plenty of picks to help make that a reality.

The Jazz has three picks in the NBA Draft this season currently, one that is likely to land somewhere in the Top 10, another that's at the back for the first round, and one at the start of the second. The Jazz need to utilize those picks to find perimeter players who can shoot and guard, while also finding some defensive depth in the low post.

Using Fanspro's Mock Draft Simulator, I was able to put together, in essence, a best-case scenario for the Jazz. These three players satisfy the needs of the franchise and give them depth at core spots. The picks were made by me personally, but the position of their pick was randomized.

So with that, let's get started.
