With the 47th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Utah Jazz select Kevin Murphy, SG, Tennessee Tech. Kevin Murphy is a skinny offensive threat. 6′6″ and 195 pounds. He is quick and good off the ball. He is a shooter. Specifically a good 3 point shooter, shooting 41% from the field. Because of his size he is not a great finisher down low and he’s also not a great defender. Also being from a small school like Tennessee Tech, the transition to the NBA may be a tough one. With the nature of a pure shooter player, if his shot is off he is pretty much useless, but if his shot is on he can be a great bench player that can wedge his way into a Jazz rotation. Especially since the Jazz have no great shooters on our team. So he reminds me a lot of Kyle Korver and if he can play like Kyle Korver did, he could be a great steal in the draft. So not a bad choice for a mid-second round selection.
