4. Brice Sensabaugh

The Jazz took Sensabaugh with the 28th overall pick in the 2023 draft, and there were flashes from the 20-year-old rookie. He put up massive numbers in the G League but struggled to translate them to Salt Lake City. The 6’6 wing averaged 7.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 18.3 minutes per game, despite shooting 39.0 percent from the field and 29.6 percent on his 3-point tries.

Nobody expected more from the 20-year-old rookie, but he did not lock himself in as a surefire building block. There were questions about how his game would translate coming out of Ohio State, and Sensabaugh did not answer them in year one.

If Utah goes full rebuild, it would be wise to open up more minutes for him. If he struggles mightily again, it may be time to move on. Yes, Brice Sensabuagh will only be 21, but he must show improvement to stick around.

The Jazz have three picks in the top 32 in the 2024 NBA Draft, and desperately need more young talent. If this is their fourth-best building block to start year three of a rebuild, Utah must consider altering their plans. Do not write Sensabaugh off completely, but there is much work to do if he wants to be a key rotation piece for years.
