    Khris Middleton is not a good comparison point for Troy Brown, Middleton was a lights out shooter at texas a&m

    I like to hear that Hutchinson is a 2way players. I like him a little more.

    Oh... my bad... I thought he shot 32% from 3 over his 3 year college career...

    They may not be comparable, but as shooters they were.

    Kiki Vadeweghe was a 6'8" small forward for Denver who could do a bit of everything -- handle, drive, shoot jumpers, rebound a bit. He might have been the 1980s version of Danilo Gallinari.

    This might be recent footage, but it looks like he's playing against kids.

    If the Jazz just want a guy who can space the floor and get buckets, Jerome Robinson might be the guy. He might be the closest thing to Jamal Murray in the draft, imo. I'd be okay with him being our pick at #21. I think he's at least 6'6".

    BYU has a 4 star player who just got off his mission who's rumored to be the most athletic basketball player BYU has ever had. He's 6'9", can shoot, jump out of the gym and his named Gavin Baxter.

    Him and Jimmer can lace them up in China in a few years.

    I am kind of a fan too. I wouldn't be totally opposed to picking him.

    Looks like the kid plays with some fire too which I like. Jerome Robinson looks like the type of player the Jazz would love.

    We'll have some nice choices at #21 for sure. If we can get someone who has high IQ, plays with passion, and is a good scorer we'll have a successful draft.

    I’m not a Jazz fan. I just like good basketball. No organisation maximises every players potential but the Jazz have an opportunity to scout some talented players & potentially add to what they have. Mitchell & Gobert were taken #13 & #27. Imagine what they can do in this draft.

    Also TB & Lyles are essentially the same players the Jazz drafted. They’re just experiencing success in different systems.

    Knox’s stock will increase as this draft has a much higher floor than other drafts. Knox’s measurements are 6’9 with a 7’ wingspan. He’s also one of the youngest players available (meaning time to develop is on his side)

    The Jazz need scorers and floor spacers. Knox might not be the best at either now but he has the potential to be better than the other players in the Jazz’s range. Personally I don’t think the Jazz will draft him.

    Keita Bates Diop - He’s probably my favourite player as he mixes production & versatility but I don’t know how much more he can develop

    Hutchinson - Passes almost every test. Not sure how he’ll look once he’s developed but the majority of the league could do with a player like him.

    Kurucs - Older, more developed Knox with post moves - reminds me a little of Hezonja. In all honesty there’s a long list of 6’8 plus European prospects who are hyped but their talent never translates. I hope he can change this. He does a lot well

    Musa - Bonafide scorer in Europe but not much else, NO defence & he struggles with contact on offense & defence. I’d be surprised if he was drafted before #21. Character wise he’s a Utah player

    Troy Brown - reminds me of AB. I like both, I know Burks lacks focus at times.

    Jaylen McDaniels - Passes the eye test but needs to add weight & consistency. To me unless he convinces in work outs, you can’t risk taking him in the first round. As better prospects are available in an abundance

    My take, but a lot can change in a month. The Jazz have a lot to consider. They can draft a combo guard a three and D type. A three point specialist, a scorer or a stretch four.

    If u watched khris middleton shoot in college it was pure coming out of his hand with nice arc and tight rotation, Troy Brown's 3 is not that far along

    Kings are the huge winners from last night. I kinda hope they land Doncic 2nd then Mo Wagner 36th. That'll still leave em with a huge chunk of capspace and a few roster spots.

    3 man platoon at PF of Skal Labissiere, Harry Giles and Mo Wagner would be entertaining.

    The kings holding that 2nd spot adds mystery to this draft, expect vlade to hold his cards close to his vest and try to drum up the best price last minute.

    K but percentages matter and 32% is not lights out... especially since he had 3 years to improve. Troy has some work to do but so did Khris... pretty shots that miss still count for 0 points.

    U sound like smeone who cant shoot a basketball well... good shooters, like good dart throwers or good bowlers or golfers can be judged on the quality and consistency of their near misses. All misses are not the same.


    To try and go back in time and nitpick the quality of khris middletons 3pt shot is hilarious. Am i supposed to believe you saw him take 1 3pt shot in college?Lol.... Are you a Texas A&M fan or something?

    Say whatever you want, but I play 2 or 3 times a week and I doubt there are many that post here that are better shooters than I am.

    Unless you have charted their misses you are guessing on the consistency of their misses. I play enough to know there are guys that shoot the ball and it looks ugly but it goes in... there are also guys who have pretty jumpers that seem to miss more than they should. There are guys who are straight broken... I don't think Brown is... Khris had to make the ball go in more... so does Troy. Not every guy figures it out, but don't ignore math.

    MIddleton's last season was riddled with injuries iirc, so it hurt his overall percentages.

    Yes, his last season in college. He had a new coach and knee injuries in his junior year.

    Your math is flawed and reliant on small sample sizes which are far more volatile than you seem to realize, ask lonzo ball. Post some khris middkleton college highlights u will see him splashing in 3's, he was playing out of position there too.
