    He's white enough, so I went with it.

    Oh, I don't disagree with what you're saying. It's a bit insulting to classify someone as a "stiff" based on his skin color. But it's also silly because the labels themselves carry little meaning.

    The Jazz will get another 1 year rental and let the rookies rot on the bench. If we picked up Irving, he would probably still be sitting on the bench behind Tinsley and Earl. LOL

    Who cares who they draft. The Jazz will just sign some journeyman vet and Ty will sit the rookie on the bench because they hadn't paid their dues or whatever dumbass rationale he uses.

    I'm hoping this crap changes next year when all the contracts expire. Having said that, it won't matter for Burks at that point; his development and/or desire to be on the team will have completely been destroyed by then, if he continues to stockpile DNP's.

    2-rating character much higher than basketball skill,
    3- letting whoever they draft sit on the bench.

    Go Jazz.
    I think especially with those 2 points - they could have drafted Kawhai Leonard and play him from the get go with Hayward. I know Burks has amazing potential but having him stuck behind Hayward isn't going to do anything to bring out that potential.

    Leonard has proven to be a SOLID defender who can rebound and steal at a great rate. He's also developing into a decent 3pt shooter. He size means he could play with Hayward interchangeably at SG/SF pretty easily.

    Dude plays for Popovich. He would not have reached that potential under Corbin.

    And if we drafted him, then we have talked about the fact that he did not prove anything yet to play 10+ min

    I think the only picks the Jazz are owed are the GS one and Brooklyn's 2015 second round pick.

    Burks would be killing it in San Antonio.

    My point was more the fact that Hayward was playing SG most of last year, and we drafted Burks who we know is a SG as well, making it more difficult to give Burks & Hayward playing time together on court... if we had drafted Leonard, that may have made it easier to play him at SF alongside Hayward...

    But yeah.. it's Corbin we're talking about here...

    I'm sure it'll be cleared up later in the season.
    There have been links that have already cleared this up. It's top 7 this season. Not that it matters. It's going to end up being the 12th pick or thereabouts.

    Also, thanks everyone for giving PKM credit for being correct about it being top 7 protected when I was the OP. ****ing hacks.

    Also, if we get say the 11th and 15th picks, how high could we move up? #8? #9? I want Poythress.

    Does anyone know which SG and which PF KOC is targeting in this year's draft?

    Seriously? I can't imagine he's really thinking about that right now. Scouts are scouting but no serious consideration would be meaningfully discussed this early.
