Posted by: Matt Webb on June 16th, 2011The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
For discussion purposes let’s pretend Minnesota drafts Enes Kanter (Cleveland Irving).
Will the Jazz draft Williams or Knight?
I have heard people say Williams is the best prospect in the draft. I have also heard people say that he is a stretch four and will have trouble guarding the three. Who to believe I know not.
I already love Knight. His character, intelligence, quickness, agility, and size are all exemplary. He would be an upgrade over Devin Harris.
However, if Derrick Williams CAN play and guard the three then he may have more upside AND be more NBA ready.
So help me…….what’s the pick and why?
Now on to this whole Jimmer thing…….I’ve never really been on board for drafting the guy. Love everything about him (and I’m not even a BYU fan), but I just didn’t see him making a fit with the Jazz. After his workout in Utah I am at a loss. I see “experts” saying that he should be considered at 2 and 3. I see that he shut down Kemba Walker. I also see that he shot near 90 %.
Someone, preferably a non biased (here’s looking at you BYU alumni fan please shed some light on what we should place on Jimmer as far as numerical value in this draft. Are we saying that he can be our starting pg? Are we saying he can be our 3rd guard a la James Harden? What do we do?!
