If Jalen Smith, Precious Achiuwa, Josh Green and Tyrell Terry all get picked before #23, then yeah--someone like Anthony could maybe slip there. Poku might be a bit more likely to drop though, since he's the proverbial '2 years away.'

I don't think it should be terribly difficult for the Jazz to move up a few spots in this draft though. I really think BRK is willing to move their pick at #19. A team that wants Bane or McDaniels should be willing to do business with us. Bigs like Perry, Reed, Nnaji or Oturu could also attract someone to our range. Tyler Bey as well.

I opt for Cole Anthony in the 1st round.
To all the draftniks: Who do you like better, Anthony or Maxey (in the unlikely, though possible, chance that one of these underperforming, modest-sized guards slips in the draft)?

I think I'd go for Anthony, though it's really close. Just going from the few games I've watched, I think Anthony provides more long-term offensive potential and their defense is perhaps close enough.

Hard to say. Maxey may be the better defender and rim finisher. Anthony may be the more natural shooter. It comes down to attitude and work ethic for me.

What assets do we have to move up a couple of spots if needed?

Future 2RPs and all the young guys. The Jazz would combine #23 + 2RP + maybe one of last year's rookies in order to move up a few spots (like #19). They'd offer Ed Davis too, but most teams won't see him as having value.

If they want to move up more than that, they'd probably need to offer Royce + #23, and I'm not sure they'd do that.

There are some nice looking prospects outside the top 10 this year though. Seems a good opportunity.

Jaden McDaniels seems like the Kelly Oubre or Cam Reddish of this draft. Great tools and upside. Lacks mental focus. With him, it's all about his drive to improve.

Cole Anthony and its not close. Utah needs a PG who can shoot it off the dribble like that. He'll look like what fans were hoping Jimmer would back in the day in this offense.

Cole Anthony could be a contender for ROY if he lands in Utah and then conley gets injured.
Wow, a backcourt of Mitchell, Clarkson, and Anthony would be something to behold, as much for their lack of conscience and persistent overconfidence in their games (not to mention the fanbase's worries about efficiency and whether any of them can operate as a second-fiddle) as anything else.
