Jazzfanz Smartest ROBOT
Okay, seriously though. I think BJ Young looks like a good prospect as a player. NBA player. Players.
The Jazz play like azz when the J ain't workin'.
I do not care what PG we get in the draft as long as they can play some defense. Our backcourt defense is HORRIBLE. I hope none of our PGs are back next year. Draft Burke/Smart/MCW/BJ Young/Kabango, as long as Tinsley and Watson are gone.
I'm still for drafting bpa .. and don't like the idea of drafting two of them .. unless they're damn close to bpa anyway.
E.J. Wells vs. NAOS
Pre-season mock (7/13/13) - page 111
One sleeper point guard prospect that I really like is Nate Wolters from South Dakota St. Wolters is 6'4 and 193 lbs, he is a senior and his averages on the year are 22.2 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 5.5 APG, and 1.8 SPG. Granted he is from South Dakota St., but those are very good numbers and his team is tied for first-place in the Summit Conference and if they can win their conference tournament they will be in the NCAA Tournament. The best team they have played is currently ranked #15 New Mexico and they did beat them 70-65, in that game Wolters had 28 pts off of (9-15) shooting from the field, 7 asts, and 5 rebs. Wolters had one of the best games of his life on Thursday beating IPFW 80-74, he had 53 pts off of (17-28) from the field including (9-14) from three and 4 rebs, 3 asts. Wolters is pretty athletic and can definitely shoot the ball, plus he is averaging 5.5 assists per game which isn't bad, needs to improve on his quickness a little bit though. Jazz currently have #18, #22, and #48 according to nbadraft.net and their mock draft(updated two days ago) has Wolters going #36. It will be interesting to see if his draft stock rises enough for him to be a late-first round pick or if he stays a consistent second-round pick in the 35-50 area.
If he is there at #48, that would be perfect, but I should have specified better, if Smart, MCW, Burke, McCollum, and Kabongo are somehow all taken at #22 assuming we got a small forward at #18 then you have to consider reaching for Wolters maybe. In reality the point guard that will be there at #18 that I would love the Jazz to take is C.J. McCollum or Burke might fall or the Jazz might slip into the lottery then there is a good chance for Burke and maybe even MCW.
Jazz need to get McCollum with their pick or Kabongo with the GS pick, assuming Burke isn't there or the Jazz start losing and end up in the lottery.
After watching the McCollum highlights, I thought he looked pretty good... granted anyone looks good in highlights.
