My original point is that it's rare for a player to be so far down the roster and get this much draft hype. It must be because he is talented. Anybody bashing him due to numbers might need to pump the breaks.It’s obviously an outlier. And I haven’t spent more than four seconds thinking about it so I’m sure there are more than just three.
Its no debate. Christopher is head and shoulders the better prospect.Primo is interesting. His length and functional athleticism stand out. He's also young enough that he could grow another inch or two, which would make him legit wing size. I'd like to see some more assists and steals, but Josh Christopher vs. Josh Primo would be an interesting debate.

On Thursday, the Jazz will hold an important pre-draft workout, league sources tell The Athletic. The participants, according to sources, will include Quentin Grimes, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Houston, David Duke, a 6-5 point guard from Providence, and Matt Mitchell, a 6-6 small forward from San Diego State.
Grimes is someone the Jazz like at No. 30. Mitchell, according to sources, has had more than 10 workouts and is a riser up the boards who could find himself selected in the second round. With the rise of P.J. Tucker types throughout the league, Mitchell’s two-way skill set as an undersized power forward could land him a role in the league. Duke is an older prospect as well, was one of the best point guards in the Big East, and someone who has nice size and athleticism for a point guard.
The workout is important because the Jazz have wanted to get a close look at Grimes. Other candidates at No. 30 for the Jazz, according to sources, include Bones Hyland of VCU, Ayo Dosunmu from Illinois, Miles McBride out of West Virginia, Herb Jones from Alabama, Joel Ayayi from Gonzaga, Josh Primo from Alabama and Jared Butler from Baylor.
The Jazz also like some no-brainers, such as Chris Duarte from Oregon and Trey Murphy from Virginia, but they aren’t expected to fall to No. 30.
